A television actor known for his work on the CW’s “90210” and on the NBC soap opera “Days of Our Lives” has been charged with a felony. The Associated Press reports that Freddie Smith was charged with felony vehicular assault and misdemeanor driving under the influence after a car crash that injured his girlfriend.
Smith, 26, reportedly lost control of his car on a curve in Ohio’s Ashtabula County Oct. 7, which ended with his car flipping over in a culvert, the story says. Authorities said Smith was legally drunk at the time, with a blood-alcohol level of 0.093, higher than Ohio’s legal limit of .08, the AP reports.
Smith had minor injuries, but actress Alyssa Tabit, 27, of North Hollywood, Calif., was trapped in the car and was seriously hurt, the story reports, noting that she is recovering. Tabit was featured on the short-lived 2013 series “Addicts Anonymous.”
Smith played Marco Salazar in the CW reboot “90210,” which aired from 2008-2013. He has been portraying Sonny Kiriakis on “Days of Our Lives” since 2011.
