A former “Days of Our Lives” actor has been charged with selling cocaine out of his Los Angeles-area home.
Dylan Michael Patton, who played the role of Will Horton from February 2009 to January 2010 in over 100 episodes, was charged Thursday with one count of possession for sale of cocaine within 1,000 feet of an elementary school .
Los Angeles County deputies arrested him after searching his Agoura Hills home with a warrant on Tuesday. Police said they seized an unspecified amount of the drug.
If he is convicted, Patton faces up to nine years of imprisonment.
Horton was the son of Sami Brady (played by Alison Sweeney). The role was later recast, though he was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in the Outstanding Younger Actor category for that role.
Patton, 20, also played Quarterback Johnny in sci-fi movie “Drones, Clones and Pheromones,” which was directed by Wayne Schotten. He has also appeared on “That’s So Raven” as Justin Banks and “Cold Case” as young Matt Merriman.
It is unknown if Patton currently has attorney or publicist representation.
“Days of Our Lives” has appeared on NBC since 1965. It is currently in its 47th season.
