Grease actor Eddie Deezen found not competent to stand trial after April arrest

Grease actor Eddie Deezen has been found not competent to stand trial after he was arrested for allegedly forcing his way inside a privately-owned nursing facility several times and refusing to leave.

In a commitment order obtained by TMZ, the document says Deezen, 65, is unable to stand trial due to a mental disorder. He has been transferred to the Maryland Department of Health, where he will be receiving treatment.

The order states Deezen is considered a danger to himself and others around him.

He will now remain under the care of the health department until the court deems he no longer poses a threat, according to TMZ.

While Deezen was initially charged with fourth-degree burglary, two counts of trespassing, and one count of disturbing the peace, prosecutors ended up changing the charges to assault and disorderly conduct, the new documents obtained by TMZ show.

The charges stem from an April 8 incident where Deezen, who is best known for playing Eugene Felsnic in the 1978 movie Grease and its 1982 sequel, was arrested for showing up at the nursing facility several times and refusing to leave. 

He was jailed and charged with fourth-degree burglary, two counts of trespassing and one count of disturbing the peace, according to a police report seen by TMZ.

Deezen allegedly pushed his way into the facility and refused to leave after a woman inside instructed him to leave.

According to police, the woman claims Deezen nearly pushed his way into one of the rooms before he was eventually kicked out. She alleges he refused to leave the nursing home and was caught by police. 

Deezen was also allegedly at the nursing home earlier that day, and was instructed to leave.

Police were called when he returned to the facility that evening. The alleged victim informed police that Dezeen had a history of stopping by her place.

The alleged victim said Dezeen had stopped by her place several times in the past, and would often leave items behind with a note.

Deezen was also captured on security camera of a neighbor who lived nearby.

The neighbor claimed he and his fiance were watching TV when he heard a noise outside. He saw Deezen attempting to open the front door on the video and called the police.

The Hollywood staple was also arrested in September 2021 at a Maryland restaurant and charged with second-degree assault, disorderly conduct and trespassing for that altercation.

The actor was allegedly causing a scene at the restaurant and refused to leave when the police arrived, and even threw several items including plates at them.

The incident started around lunchtime when police were called for Deezen causing a scene at a restaurant.

When the police arrived, Deezen reportedly went to hide behind a woman in a booth and refused multiple orders for him to leave.

He was forcibly removed from the restaurant, with the report claiming he threw numerous items at police officers including plates, bowls and food, with one of the deputies being struck.

The actor was shirtless when he was removed from the restaurant.

There was also video of the restaurant arrest, posted on Facebook in September 2021 by Cumberland on Patrol, which purported to show a shirtless Deezen being lead away in handcuffs.

As he was sat on a bench, he’s heard saying, ‘Ow I could have been hurt.’

Another Facebook user named Amanda Lambert offered an account of the 2021 arrest.

‘So Eddie Deezen was just arrested at the mall. Why couldn’t it have been where I could get video,’ Lambert began.

‘He was in Wasabi asking customers inappropriate questions.. such as if they would have foursomes and some ish and he was probably upset over the lack of false lashes!’ she added, referring to an incident in July where he went on a rant over a waitress not wearing fake eyelashes.

‘Then was yelling at the police and telling them to arrest him and was shirtless. Edit: he was also kicked out of AT&T because he walked in and said “I don’t see any African American employees, I will put this in my report,”‘ she added.

Deezen made headlines in June when he was accused of harassing a waitress named Kara Lashbaugh, and posted a lengthy Facebook message about her.

She took to Twitter stating, ‘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. And this grown a** old man has the balls to post this on facebook about me im losing my mind.’

Deezen was born in Cumberland, Maryland and married Linda George in 1984.
