You might remember Sam Jones III aka Clark’s best friend Pete Ross from the first 3 seasons of Smallville. Well, it looks like Pete may not be returning to the show anytime soon!
Jones was arrested this morning when cops discovered he was part of a drug conspiracy, dealing out more than 10,000 pills of oxycodone. DEA agents took the actor into custody and reported Jones to be a “co-conspirator” in several major drug deals that occurred in 2008. Federal court documents revealed Jones to be a “Hollywood connection”, which allowed him to illegally purchase and distribute the oxycodone.
Sam Jones III has been charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute, and will be due in L.A. federal court later today. The actor could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted. Ouch!
Somebody SAVE ME!!! Looks like Clark’s not coming to save your ass this time around, Petey. You’ve gone too far!
