Update - Chris Evans' brother charged in drug bust - Drug confirmed as cocaine

Former One Life To Live actor (and sibling of a celebrity) Scott Evans, the brother of Captain America star Chris Evans, has been arrested and charged with allegedly trying to purchase cocaine on Tuesday, December 4 in Hollywood, California.

The former One Life to Live cast member, who played Officer Oliver Fish in the soap opera, is accused of attempting to buy the drugs from an undercover police officer.

The incident took place on Tuesday, December 4 in Hollywood, California, reports E! Online.

Evans has now been charged with one count of attempted possession of a controlled substance.

He appeared to respond to the arrest on his Facebook page that morning: "Most ridiculous night of my life in LA so far. At least I made it a year before getting arrested," reads a post on a page attributed to the actor.

His next film Behaving Badly - which also stars Selena Gomez, Cary Elwes, Heather Graham and Dylan McDermott - is currently in post-production and slated for release next year.


Update Updated: Evans was in criminal court today for his arraignment with his high-powered lawyer Shepard Kopp and entered a plea of not guilty to the cocaine charge. He's due back in court on January 14th.
