Actor Arrested

Well, this might be even worse for his police academy application than bickering with his mother and sister in front of the Police Commander was.


Casey Moss (JJ) was arrested at a hotel in Phoenix, Arizona, after a drunken rampage. Fox 10 Phoenix reports:

Employees at the “W” Hotel say Moss became belligerent and tried to take a swing at a bartender after a night of drinking.
“The subject became, after being overly intoxicated, upset with the staff because they cut him off,” said Hoster.

You can read the full story at the link above. Please note a) how the anchor refers to him as “Casey Moore,” and b) how we somehow have body-cam footage of a well-off drunk white kid being arrested, but it mysteriously never exists for any of these horrible, fatal beatings of black people. Anyway

What makes this even worse is that Moss was in Phoenix with other Days cast members promoting Greg Meng’s new 50th anniversary coffee table book (Kate Mansi, Thaao Penghlis, and others were in New York and New Jersey yesterday for the same purpose). Freddie Smith’s DUI didn’t get him fired, but this happened during a trip for the show. Not good. And I remember those weeks when he looked onscreen as if he’d shown up to work hungover. Not that a few drunken nights when you’re 21 necessarily indicate a larger problem, but the inability to control yourself this way doesn’t hint at good things, either. Yikes.

    I sure hope that this very young, very talented actor doesn’t head down the dangerous, lethal road so many have before him. Fame, wealth and brains that are not fully developed can be a devastating combination. I hope the rest of the cast will rally around Casey and lead him through this.

    that mug shot says it ALL…….. wow.

    i just checked out the (you can not do anything anywhere at any time ever without being caught on) Video (and having it played on the internets for constant humiliation)…….brings to mind
    the old saying “Tore up from the floor up…..”

    I wonder if he and whoever he might have been with were like, “Hey! I suggest we drink before we go out drinking…!” ?

    • mykleraus Says:

      The video made me too uncomfortable to watch the entire thing. It’s really bad.

      It’s hard for me to imagine alcohol having THAT effect on someone. It’s scary. I drink all the time, but the worst things I’m ever motivated to do are, like, text my exes and eat a whole pizza. It’s frightening to imagine losing control this way.

      • underyourwing Says:

        i have an ancient system so i really could not watch much either…..but yeah, it affects folks differently…..hopefully he will stop drinking with a rage reaction like that. i am not a big drinker at all (Rolling Rock here and there) but
        I noticed when i slipped just a bit of vodka into….whatever it was…ginger ale i think… brought out some aggressiveness i did not like. i got mean.
        his age DOES have something to do with it only for the fact the brain is not really not fully developed til later as strange as it might sound….

        none of us know his history with alcohol drugs family ect so…….prayers out to Casey.

      • mykleraus Says:

        Oh, totally. He’s a kid. I think that’s a big part of the debate about lowering the drinking age to 18 — the brain is definitely NOT fully developed by then. I hope this is a wake-up call for him.

  4. Days Fan Says:

    wow, poor kid. Have to agree with your body cam comment but aside from that I have to wonder if he was that drunk maybe there was something else going on? Is he still dating true o’brien? They seemed rather serious, did they, maybe, have a fight or break up. I really like Casey, hope he gets it together before it gets out of hand.

    • mykleraus Says:

      I haven’t seen anything suggesting they aren’t still together, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they’d split up. He posted a photo with her a few weeks ago, though.
