Which Former Nickelodeon Star Was Arrested for Pot and an Underage Girl?
The cast members of Zoey 101 just can't win. Matthew Underwood is the latest former star of the hit Nickelodeon show to court controversy, as he was reportedly arrested after police found him in a bedroom in Port St. Lucie, Florida, with marijuana and a 17-year-old girl.
According to TMZ, Matthew — who turned 22 on Monday — was taken to a local jail, where he was later released. Matthew played Logan Reese on Zoey 101 for the duration of the series, from 2005 to 2008. He hasn't gotten much work since then, except for a role in a 2009 B-level horror film called Reality Horror Night. Talk about a harsh reality.
His Zoey co-star, Jamie Lynn Spears, faced controversy herself back in 2007 when the then-sixteen year old actress announced that she and her boyfriend, Casey Alrdidge, were expecting a child. She gave birth to Maddie in June of 2008, and she and Casey broke up for good in 2010. Jamie is now working on a country-music career.
To quote Jamie's sister's hit song, it sounds like the lives of this show's cast members have gotten a bit "toxic."
