Charlie Heaton’s
Run-In With Officials

Charlie has missed
the premiere of Stranger Things 2 because he was denied entry to the
United States. There were rumors that the airport officials wouldn’t
let him enter the country because the sniffer dogs found traces of
cocaine in his clothes in his luggage. Apparently, he was sent back
to London and wasn’t arrested because the amount wasn’t enough to
warrant any charges. He later put out a statement that said “My
planned travel to the U.S. last week was affected by an issue at U.S.
immigration, and I am working to rectify it as soon as possible. I do
want to clarify that I was not arrested or charged with a crime, and
cooperated fully with the U.S. officials at LAX. I’m sorry to all
the fans and my Stranger Things family for missing the premiere. We
are all so proud of this season and I would never want this story to
negatively impact the show.”
