Another Soap Star Sullies Record

Llanview's loss may be Rikers' gain.
One Life to Live star Nathaniel Marston was charged with four felony counts Monday—second-degree assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest—stemming from a weekend brawl in New York that left one man hospitalized and a police officer injured.
According to a criminal complaint filed in Manhattan Criminal Court, the 32-year-old soap hunk attacked three men by swinging a metal crate at them just after 4:30 a.m. Sunday in midtown Manhattan.
It's unclear what prompted the fight, though one of his alleged victims, Salvatore Cabibbo, told the New York Daily News Marston hopped out of a taxi, began arguing with the driver and then, "crazed," began shouting, "I'm going to get you" and ran toward Cabibbo with the crate.
Marston told the New York Post, however, that cops arrested the wrong guy.
"I was attacked by three people," he told the paper, adding that he "was mistakenly taken into custody as the attacker."
The complaint alleges Marston whacked one man on the hand, hit another in the back of the neck, causing bruising and swelling, and sent a third man to the hospital with a broken leg.
When cops arrived, per the report, Marston began flailing his arms, kicking out at officers and refusing to be handcuffed. One officer received medical treatment for a cut hand and bruised knee.
Per the Daily News, cops said Marston, a former amateur boxer, appeared to be under the influence of narcotics when they were called to the scene.
Following the incident, Marston was taken directly to Bellevue Hospital, where he was treated for various cuts and bruises before his Monday arraignment. Judge John Cataldo allowed the actor to be released without bail.
His employers may not let him off so easily.
"We're aware of the incident and are reviewing its details," said Lauri Hogan, a spokeswoman for ABC.
Working against Marston is the Disney-owned network's strict morals clause in its daytime actors' contracts, something that has felled more than one favorite in the past—All My Children's Michael Nader, for one.
Marson isn't a stranger to New York's finest. Back in 1999, he was arrested for punching out an ATM. He was working on CBS' As the World Turns at the time. He joined One Life to Live in 2001 as Al Holden, only to be abruptly fired two years later. However, the actor proved so popular masses of fans were able to petition the network and gain his return. He rejoined the show in 2004 as Dr. Michael McBain.
He's due back in court on Feb. 4.
