Scott Evans BUSTED for Undercover Drug Buy

Former soap actor Scott Evans -- younger brother of Chris Evans -- got busted for attempting to buy drugs off an undercover cop ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us Evans was arrested Tuesday evening when he tried to score narcotics from an LAPD officer posing as a dealer.

Evans -- who played Officer Oliver Fish on "One Life to Live" a few years back -- was booked at 6:15PM for attempt to possess a controlled substance ... a felony. He bailed out around 12:30AM.

It's unclear what drug Evans was trying to buy.

Evans reacted to the bust with a Facebook post early this morning: "Most ridiculous night of my life in LA so far. At least I made it a year before getting arrested."

Why the FUCK do cops do that? Busting drug buyers? Oh way to make the world a safer fucking place! They should put that time and energy into arresting people who commit crimes with actual victims.

But then again, why is he buying drugs from a stranger? No bueno...

The war on drugs causes so much bullshit from overpopulated prisons to gun violence via black market weapon distribution.

lbr war on drugs= excuse for law enforcement to be unabashedly racist.

Cuz like who is busting the people who provide all the high rollers their precious cocaine?

Exactly and it sucks because all of my white upper middle class dealers NEVER get busted and they're the ones who are smoking a lot of what they sell. My more loyal dealers who are black and lower class don't smoke weed and hold down 2 full time jobs in addition to selling. They're the ones who get busted and they're the ones who need the money the most to support their families and when they get busted they lose their jobs too. It makes me sick because they're not doing ANYTHING wrong. They're just supplying pot to fucking college kids and their neighbors to make a buck.

yep it's really fucking awful. i know a bunch of white guys who sell the stuff and see it as nbd because they know they're not gonna get targeted by the police and they just do it for extra cash rather than survival. meanwhile i don't know any black people who do so or they at least don't treat it like a joking matter like the white guys but of course black people get the drug dealer stigma. i don't care about the act of selling weed itself but their privilege is disgusting.

My mother was an undercover cop who focused exclusively on white collar drug crimes (namely busting doctors who set up shop to prescribe legal drugs illegally. One of the few cases they prosecuted successfully was a doctor who was prescribing massive amount of harmful drugs to pregnant women over a period of years) and I've always thought that if the war on drugs were operating more in a regulatory capacity like this it would make more sense. It's really such a small portion of the police force's efforts, though. And of course, the standards for convicting doctors are so, so much higher. Convincing a prosecutor to take on a case like that is very difficult, which of course relates indirectly to issues of race and class, because hmmmmm, who is easy to convict? The system is blatantly biased.

It reminds me of a trailer for a Prohibition doc that talked about how it created a seedy underbelly of society and made regular citizens into common criminals...I seriously thought it was about the War on Drugs
