Stranger Things Actor Barred Entry to US

Sunday, 29 Oct, 2017

Stranger Things actor Charlie Heaton was reportedly detained at LAX Airport in LA on Thursday (October 26) after being found to be in possession of cocaine.

According to an anonymous law enforcement official, Heaton, a British national who plays Jonathan Byers on the show, flew into Los Angeles International Airport last Saturday.

After drug-sniffing dogs caught the actor with traces of cocaine on his personal items, Heaton was detained but not arrested.

One Stranger Things star was celebrating the release of Season 2 on Netflix perhaps a little too hard this past week.

It's important to note that Heaton was not arrested after the discovery - apparently, only a very small amount was found, and it likely wasn't worth the trouble. The AP reported that his publicist hasn't responded to requests for comment.

It was not clear how much time Heaton would be denied entry into the U.S.

The 23-year-old, who was reportedly sent back to the United Kingdom, missed the Netflix show's season two premiere party on Thursday night, as his co-stars Millie Bobby Brown and Winona Ryder celebrated the release.
