'Grease' star Eddie Deezen was back in jail for causing a ruckus at a restaurant, his second time in the past four months. According to witnesses, the cops were called to a Wasabi outlet at a Maryland mall after Deezen's behavior escalated from difficult to worse. He refused to leave with the cops and even chucked crockery at them to evade being arrested, according to reports. 

Deezen has been on troubled waters since June this year. After being accused of harassing a waitress who slammed his behavior as "creepy", Deezen was dropped as a client by his public relations manager. Steve Joiner had told Fox at the time he was "terminating all future dealings with him" amidst the scandal. What egged Joiner to make the decision were photos of Deezen with multiple waitresses and workers at restaurants including McDonald's and The Smoothie Grille which began to surface around the same time.

"I think it's immoral. I think it's sexist and it's unconscionable. All this young lady is trying to do is work support herself, and the last thing she needs is a grown man in his 60s doing something like that," Joiner said. "It's creepy what he did. It's very creepy. It's very wrong," he added. Deezen in a now-deleted Facebook post had called the waitress Kara Lashbaugh an "attention wh**e". His comments came after Lashbaiugh had openly criticized him and raised concern about her safety in a post she shared on her Facebook page. 

Eddie Deezen threw plates at cops to evade arrest

According to a TMZ article citing a police report, Deezen caused a scene at a restaurant in LaVale, Maryland around lunch hour on Thursday, September 18. He was asked to leave and the business had to involve the cops when he refused to do so. When deputies arrived, Deezen ran and hid behind a woman in a booth. At this time too he ignored multiple orders from cops to leave and had to be forcibly removed. 

The report also stated he threw numerous items including food plates and bowls at the cops, striking one officer in the process. The cops were finally able to remove him from the facility and he was pictured shirtless outside, being restrained by cops. Deezen was charged with second-degree assault, disorderly conduct, and trespassing. Below is a grainy video of him being arrested. 


Eddie Deezen 'asked customers if they would have foursomes'

According to a Facebook post, the authenticity of which cannot be proven, Deezen allegedly asked customers at the restaurant if they would have foursomes. "So Eddie Deezen was just arrested at the mall. Why couldn't it have been where I could get video. 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! 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"
