Stranger Things’ Charlie Heaton speaks out after being detained for cocaine possession

Stranger Things fans may have binged on the show’s highly anticipated second season these past few days, but it isn’t all good news… 

Charlie Heaton – who plays Jonathan Byers on the show – was reportedly detained at LAX over the weekend, for being in possession of cocaine.

The actor was refused entry into the United States and was sent immediately back to the UK, therefore missing the premiere of the show.

However, as he reportedly only possessed a small amount of the illegal drug in his luggage, he was not arrested or charged…

“I do want to clarify that I was not arrested or charged with a crime, and cooperated fully with the US officials at LAX,” he said in an official statement.

“I’m sorry to all the fans and my Stranger Things family for missing the premiere.

“We are all so proud of this season and I would never want this story to negatively impact the show.”

It’s currently unclear whether he will be allowed to return to the USA in the future…
