"Grease" actor Eddie Deezen was arrested in Maryland on April 9 after he allegedly forced his way into a nursing facility and refused to leave after a woman told him to get out. He also allegedly tried to break into a patient's room before being kicked out an arrested.

Deezen has been charged with burglary, two counts of trespassing and disturbing the peace, according to an inmate record.

The 65-year-old actor is best known for playing the role of nerd Eugene Felsnic in the 1978 classic Grease and its 1982 sequel. Deezen also had a voice acting role as Know-It-All in the 2004 film The Polar Express.

Deezen reportedly showed up at the facility earlier in the day which is why employees of the building called the police when he showed up again that night. A victim told police that Deezen made regular appearances at the nursing home, leaving behind items with notes accompanying them.

Deezen was also arrested in September 2021 at a Maryland restaurant in LaVale in Allegany County after he "went on a rampage," refused to leave and threw plates and food at police officers.

Prior to that, Deezen was involved in another incident at a Maryland restaurant where he was accused of harassing a waitress.

"Eddie Deezen is a f—ing CREEP who comes into my work at least once a week, calls and asks other servers for my schedule, and if he comes in and I’m not wearing makeup HE LEAVES," the waitress wrote on Twitter in June 2021 and accompanied it with multiple screenshots of a Facebook post he allegedly wrote about her. "And this grown-ass old man has the balls to post this on Facebook about me I’m losing my mind."
