'Days of Our Lives' star Casey Allen Moss arrested, accused of assault at Arizona bar
Days of Our Lives star Casey Allen Moss was arrested on Monday, after police say he attempted to punch a bartender at the bar at the W Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The 21-year-old actor was "intoxicated" and instigated an altercation with the bar staff after being cut off, Sgt. Ben Hoster told ET on Wednesday. According to Hoster, after he attempted to punch the bartender but missed, he shoved another staff member before he was tackled by a bouncer and held down. Moss allegedly had to be taken to the ground again by an officer who handcuffed him and was attempting to escort him out of the bar, when he began to struggle with the officer.
When asked what his name was, Moss reportedly yelled, "I'm Casey Moss and I'm an actor on Days of Our Lives." He also cursed and yelled at hotel staff, police say.
Moss was later transported to the Scottsdale jail without further incident, and is now facing charges of assault, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.
Moss, who plays JJ Deveraux Jr. on the popular daytime drama, has stayed silent on the arrest so far. On Monday, he tweeted about having a book signing in Phoenix, Arizona, for Days of our Lives 50 Years by Greg Meng, which hit shelves on Tuesday.
"1,200 people showed up to @nbcdays book signing here in Phoenix, AZ," he wrote. "All of the #Days50 books, sold out! Such an honor. Thank you all!"
