Yikes! Actor Michael Smith, known for the role of the lovably goofy Bubbles in the hit show ‘Trailer Park Boys’, was placed under arrest on Mar. 31 for allegedly choking a female friend while partying in Hollywood. We have all the shocking details right here!
This is insane! Michael Smith, 43, was arrested in Hollywood on Mar. 31 for allegedly choking a female friend he was partying with. The actor is famous for his endearing role as Bubbles, a bespectacled goofball in the popular show Trailer Park Boys. Here’s what we know so far.
This story is crazy, because the character we’ve come to know and love as Bubbles is completely harmless, but the actor who plays him was just arrested for domestic battery, TMZ reports. Mike was hanging out at the Roosevelt hotel in Hollywood when he apparently got into an altercation with the woman he was with about someone he was texting.
Witnesses reported that they could hear yells coming from a bathroom near the pool, with a woman yelling that she was being choked. When they busted into the room, he had pinned her up against the wall of the bathroom.
Mike ran away when the police were called, but they caught up to him and arrested him on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge. Fans are particularly upset because Bubbles is such a funny, good-natured character in the popular show. Trailer Park Boys will begin it’s 10th season on Netflix soon, and did an appearance in-character on Jimmy Kimmel recently. Mike seemed fine and normal during it.
