'Smallville' Actor Arrested in Big-Time Drug Deal

10/21/2009 2:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

'Smallville' Actor Sam JonesOne of the stars of "Smallville" was arrested this morning -- after cops say he was part of a conspiracy to deal more than 10,000 pills of oxycodone.

TMZ has learned Sam Jones, who played Clark Kent's best friend on the show, was taken into custody by DEA agents who claim Jones was a "co-conspirator" in a series of major drug deals in 2008.

According to documents filed in federal court, the DEA claims Jones was the "Hollywood connection" in a plot to illegally purchase and distribute the oxycodone.

Jones has been charged with conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute. He's due in federal court in L.A. later today.

If convicted, Jones faces up to 20 years in federal prison.

Even though Smallville is over-the-top PC crazy, it's one of my favorites. Disappointed in Sam. It's been years since he was on there though. Not sure how exactly he'd be the "Hollywood connection" since his biggest role was being a token on a white WB/CW show. That's kinda like saying Vanilla Ice is the connection in the rap world.

What is with these effin' pursed lip shots? Is this a requirement for this generation to purse their lips together every time a camera clicks? Stop the madness...

CNN just put out a breaking news alert. Numerous people in Hollywood have reported hearing a strange wailing sound this morning. They are updating story now... It appears the sound is coming from Sam Jones crying hysterically for his mother. Save me momma, save me. Wah Wah Wah

The douche lips have to go. This guy hasn't been on Smallville in over three seasons. Why did they even bother mentioning Smallville?

Wtf?!?! An upper class black kid from of all cities, Boston, trying to be street!?!?!? Yeah, nothing screams "hardcore" like well-to-do suburban kids trying to be a thug. Hope he thinks getting his "cred" was worth it.

This dude hasn't been on Smallville in forever. I wonder if Lindsay Lohan is panicking that her supply source has just dried up.

To me I would think he would be recognized more for his role on ER... he played Chaz, Mikhi Phifer's brother... a gay paramedic needing his brother's approval. He had a big role near the end of the series...

Seems like everyone is falling under the Oxy spell... too bad... i know first hand how much money and life it drains from you... (not me but someone I know)
