Frank Dillane Arrested: ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ Star Allegedly Punched Security Guard

Uh oh. 'Fear The Walking Dead' star Frank Dillane, known as Nick on the show, was arrested after he allegedly hooked a security guard after skipping a checkpoint on the CBS lot. Frank Dillane, 25, ran into some trouble the night of the Fear The Walking Dead mid-season finale, Sunday, May 22, in Los Angeles, California. A new report claims that the actor got into a fight with a security guard on a studio lot, which led to him being booked by the Los Angeles Police Department.

Where’s Madison when you need her? Unfortunately, Madison (aka Kim Dickens) was nowhere to be found when the actor who plays her son Nick (Frank Dillane) found himself in handcuffs, reports TMZ. According to the report, the arrest went down on the CBS lot in Studio City, California. It’s unclear why Frank was at the studio, though he could have been attending Talking Dead which films there.

The report claims that Frank tried to skip a security checkpoint within the studio, which is when guards tried to stop him. Unfortunately, Frank was reportedly unhappy about the attention from security and allegedly took a swing at one of the guards. The guards then detained Frank until the LAPD arrived to arrest him themselves, reportedly charging him with battery. Eek.

A source told the outlet that Frank’s behavior was “erratic” when the incident went down. For now, reps for the actor have not yet replied to HollywoodLife.com for comment.

Interestingly enough, this all went down the very same night as the mid-season two finale of Fear The Walking Dead. In the episode, Frank’s character, Nick, made the very difficult decision to turn his back on his family and go off on his own without them. SPOILER ALERT! The episode ends with a blood-covered Nick walking off into the distance on his own as his mom, sister, and friends drive away without him. Not a good sign for anyone!
