One of the stars of the Netflix hit “Stranger Things” reportedly missed the show’s season two premiere party Thursday night in Los Angeles because he was denied entry into the U.S.
TMZ reports that Charlie Heaton, who plays Jonathan Byers on the show, was allegedly caught with cocaine at the airport.
“Law enforcement sources tell us … the ‘Stranger Things’ star flew into LAX last Saturday from London, but was denied entry because a random baggage check uncovered trace amounts of cocaine in his bag,” TMZ reports. “We’re told since Heaton didn’t have a previous record, he was allowed to withdraw his application to enter the country and get on a plane back to London instead of being arrested.”
Heaton will reportedly be allowed to enter the U.S. once he reapplies for admission.
