In a tragic example of life imitating art, Scott Siegel, who played a steroid pusher in The Wrestler, recently pled guilty to possession of steroids and other charges. According to LoHud.com, in an attempt to avoid arrest by the Drug Enforcement Administration on February 18th, Siegel fled in his truck, ultimately leading police on a "wild demolition-derby-style chase" before being arrested.
Siegel pled guilty to one count of possession for 1,500 bottles of anabolic steroids and two counts of using a deadly weapon to assault officers, due to hitting several police cars and trying to run over an officer on foot. Siegel is in jail pending his January 14th sentencing and could serve up to 20 years in prison just for the top charge.
