Jason Cook (Shawn Douglas Brady) was arrested earlier this week at the Des Moines International Airport on charges of public intoxication and possession of drug paraphernalia.
According to authorities, Cook became argumentative with airport officials after a marijuana pipe and marijuana debris was allegedly found in his luggage. Cook was in Des Moines to lend his support for the 31st Annual Variety Club Telethon.
"Jason appeared to be intoxicated, showing signs as bloodshot watery eyes, argumentative behavior, inability to follow instructions and smelled strongly of an alcoholic beverage," a police report said.
According to some set sources, Cook's arrest comes as a head to some poor professional behavior in recent weeks.
"He is always late," added one of Cook's co-stars. "And he doesn't know his lines."
Because of Cook's arrest, the actor missed taping some of his scenes. The show quickly shuffled the production schedule around to accommodate Cook's absence and the missed scenes were taped the next day.
Meanwhile, a DAYS spokesperson asserts that everything is fine on the DAYS set, adding that the show had "no comment" on Cook's arrest. Cook likewise had no comment on his arrest.
Cook was released from jail after posting $650 bond. The charges against Cook are misdemeanors, punishable by up to one year in jail and/or fines of up to $1500.
