Scott Evans busted for allegedly trying to buy drugs

Sudbury-bred actor Scott Evans
(inset), brother of “Captain America” star Chris Evans, is in a spot of trouble this holiday season. The former soap star was charged this week with one count of attempted possession of a controlled substance, according to E! News. The charge stems from an incident Dec. 4 when Evans allegedly attempted to buy cocaine from an undercover police officer. He was arrested, booked, and later released on $10,000 bail. The 29-year-old actor, who played Officer Oliver Fish on “One Life to Live” from 2008 to 2010, pleaded not guilty and is due back in court Jan. 14.
