The star of Netflix’s “Greenhouse Academy” Chris O’Neil has had one of the worst weeks in his life while being arrested for hitting two cars, injuring one of the occupants, and then fleeing the scene. Authorities say that O’Neal was driving in the San Fernando Valley at around 11 PM Friday when he struck 2 cars, injuring one of the people inside and then fled the scene.
The cops say they got two 911 calls from different people, responded to the scene and saw tire tracks to O’Neil’s car. They followed the tracks to a nearby front lawn where they found the actor’s ’94 Camaro with him inside, fully awake but probably in shock after the incident. The cops then gave him a field sobriety test and say he blew just over the legal limit which automatically came with a charge.
Chris, who also starred in Nickelodeon’s “How to Rock,” “Swindle” and “You Gotta See This,” was arrested for felony hit-and-run and felony DUI. As for the person who was hurt in the crash, the injuries are minor according to local authorities. O’Neal’s rep, Blair M. Underwood, had no comment at the moment, but we promise to keep you updated on the news after we find out more detail on the incident.
As for the actor’s most recent lead, Greenhouse Academy is enjoying a relatively good success with the show hitting season 4 on Netflix. The show is based on brother and sister Hayley and Alex Woods attending an elite boarding school for future leaders. However, they soon realize that everything is not as it seems with Greenhouse Academy scoring a 7 out 10 stars in IMDB and a fair amount of popularity among Netflix users.
