Vampire Diaries just debuted on The CW, and already four of its stars are grabbing headlines by getting themselves arrested: Nina Dobreva, Kayla Ewell, Sara Canning and Candice Accola were nabbed by police on Aug. 22 in Georgia for disorderly conduct, after 911 was called to report them hanging off a bridge over the interstate.
The Smoking Gun reports the foursome, along with actress Krystal Vayda and photographer Tyler Shields, were apparently holding a photo shoot for the show. Townspeople in Smarr, a town 65 miles south of Atlanta, where the show is filmed, called in to report “females hanging from” Rumble Road BRidge and “flashing motorists” driving northbound on Interstate 75.
According to a Monroe County Sheriff’s Office report, the actresses were being shot by Tyler, whose digital cameras were inspected by a cop who discovered images showing “the females hanging, sitting and straddling the bridge.”
A deputy remarks in the report that one picture “even showed one female being held by her legs by the other females, as if they were trying to throw her over.”
The six arrestees were booked at the Monroe County lockup where each posed for a mug shot.
TSG asked Tyler ab out the actress dangling from the bridge.
“They have a flair for the drama,” he said. “I didn’t Suge Knight the cast of The Vampire Diaries.”
The photographer, who said the group “never did anything remotely bad” during the shoot, told TSG that he paid $4000 in fines to settle the charges against the group.
