The 48-year-old actor – who played the grandfather on the Disney Channel show – was arrested on Friday (December 14) in Salt Lake City, Utah for investigation of enticing a minor by internet or text, a second-degree felony, and four counts of dealing in materials harmful to a minor, a third-degree felony, court documents state via KSL.
Stoney reportedly asked the person to engage in acts with him and to send him nude photos. The affidavit claims Stoney also sent pornographic photos.
“Stoney Westmoreland, an actor working on the series ‘Andi Mack,’ was arrested in Salt Lake City today. Given the nature of the charges and our responsibility for the welfare of employed minors,” Disney said in a statement. “We have released him from his recurring role and he will not be returning to work on the series which wraps production on its third season next week.”
Stoney was arrested when he took a ride-sharing service to pick up the believe he believed to be a teen.
