Antwon Tanner, better known as Skills from CW's One Tree Hill (one of my favorites) was busted for selling social security numbers. Weird. He apparently passed a mix of fake numbers and real ones from both living and dead people to an unnamed accomplice who then sold them to an undercover ICE agent.
He surrendered yesterday to a Brooklyn Federal court, plead not guilty and is out on $250,000 bond. The indictment states Tanner made thousands of dollars on this scam between December 2005 and July 2008. Word is all transactions took place through the mail and Tanner never actually met the accomplice or the agent.
I can't imagine why he would be involved in something like this. One Tree Hill can't pay that badly. No word from The CW or One Tree Hill producers. What's next? Mouth arrested for selling untaxed cigarettes? Peyton busted for selling bootleg copies of Fallout Boy CD's on 14th St?
Read the two indictments. (Link to E! Online)
