Your a friggen star. Do you really not know someone that sells coke? You have to.buy it from a stranger!? He obviously isnt a habitual user. You should of called Lohan or Sheen first to get the 411. Need a assistant anyone? I'm open and cheap!

Scott is a good actor who had a groundbreaking part on OLTL. He would have had a full time job for a lot longer if the homophobic american housewives had not protested his existence because his character happened to be a homo and had a bf that he married. ABC caved into the buy-bull thumpers and sent him and his husband packing. Well, OLTL is gone anyway... LOL

The drug laws in this country are ridiculous. So what if he was trying to buy a bit of recreational coke for his personal use? He deserves to be a felon for that? I don't think so. Good luck to Scott and everyone else have been entrapped and whose lives have been ruined by the laws against a bit of recreational drug use while millions of others walk and drive around drunk as hell every day...

All I can say is what a shame that such a young and healthy man is toying with his life and future for a drug that will inevitably lead to his demise.

This is soooo stupid. How much coke was he trying to buy? Probably not very much at all; and this is what the police put their resources to? What a waste of tax dollars. This whole thing, the cops time, the judge, the trail, the punishment, will far exceed the worth of even busting him.

Undercover cop will spend more time filling out paperwork than this foolio will ever spend behind bars. LAPD, you're wasting your time arresting celebrities only to look like fools at the end of the day.
