Oxycodone update: today, a former Smallville star gets arrested

Sam Jones IIIYesterday we told you that Big Brother winner Adam Jasinski was arrested for trying to sell oxycodone pills that he had bought with some of his winnings from the CBS reality show (I'm going to assume he didn't spend all of the $500,000 on the pills, but who knows), and now we have another TV personality involved with the drug.

Sam Jones III, who you might remember as Clark Kent's best friend Pete from Smallville and Pratt's younger brother Chaz on ER, was arrested this morning on charges of attempting to deal 10,000 oxycodone pills. The official charge is "conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute." The plot was major, says the DEA, and Jones has been called "the Hollywood connection."

Stay tuned the rest of the week for what I'm sure will be daily updates on Hollywood stars who are involved with oxycodone. Maybe we should start a category for it.

I've gotta point a finger at the Red Kryptonite. That and his Stride gum issues. Pete had problems man.

lol! def the stride gum. jeeze, that sux he got caught. Hollywood actors need sum connections they can trust..but who busted him and why ~ prob cause he wouldn't sell to them. eff Oxy tho, that stuff is nasty ~ stick to the herb ~ medical is easier to get in CA fools.

How sad. I can't imagine how many actors out there are struggling to find work, and here is a working actor with a nice resume of projects and recognizable enough to keep getting work. Yet he's in this situation. I understand why some actors choose to live outside of Hollywood away from this drama.

Maybe he wasn't getting enough work as an actor.

Working on Smallville probably drove him to drugs. I'm sure it would do the same to everyone.

Specifically, being asked to play an iconic blond, freckled character probably drove him to drugs.
