Report: Actor From “The Wrestler” Could Face Up to 45 Years in Jail

Nick Paglino

Newsday.com is reporting that Scott Siegel, who played a steriod dealer in Darren Aronofsky’s "The Wrestler," could face up to 45 years in prison if he is convicted of possessing and distributing steroids and assaulting law enforcement officers in New York City.

The actor was indicted on the above charges yesterday, which stems from an incident which took place back on February 18th when a lengthy car chase ensued throughout the New York City suburb of Eastchester when law enforcement agents tried to bring Seigel in for the steroid charges. 

The actor will be arraigned in White Plains, NY tomorrow, and his attorney Barry Levin is claiming he fled from police out of fear.
