“Grease” actor Eddie Deezen was arrested after refusing to leave a restaurant in LaVale, Maryland, TMZ reported.

Deezen, who is best known for playing Eugene Felsnic in the original “Grease” movies was accused of “causing a scene” at the unnamed restaurant on Thursday, according to the outlet.

TMZ cited a police report, which said Deezen, 64, also apparently hid behind a woman in a booth and refused orders to leave the restaurant.

According to TMZ, he threw several items at officers – including plates, bowls, and food. Eventually, Deezen was forcibly removed from the restaurant and sent to jail, the outlet added.

Maryland State Police did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

He has been charged with second-degree assault, disorderly conduct, and trespassing, TMZ reported.

Earlier this year, the actor was accused of harassing a waitress over her appearance, according to TMZ.

Following that accusation, Deezen claimed on social media that he was being cyberbullied by her. His lawyer reportedly later told the outlet that Deezen felt terrible that the waitress was offended by his comments.
