‘Outer Banks’ Star Austin North Breaks His Silence after Arrest

Austin North has released a statement, breaking his silence after getting arrested earlier in the week.

The star has gone online to address the situation and notes that he was experiencing a severe panic attack that made him feel as though he was on the cusp of death.

He has gone ahead to provide a lengthy description of what happened on his Instagram Post, where he writes:

“I am distraught by the events that took place in Las Vegas this past week”,

He goes on to add:

“My friend drove me to the hospital because I thought I was having a heart attack. Several tests were taken, including blood, which came back negative for any drugs or alcohol in my system. I was having a severe anxiety attack.”

In his post, Austin points out that it’s not the first time he has experienced a panic attack, but that this was by far the worst attack he has ever experienced.

The actor has apologized to the hospital personnel and is hoping he will get a chance to shed light on what’s been happening to him in the coming days.

So, What Happened?

Austin North, 27, best known for his appearance on the hit TV series Outer Banks, got arrested in Las Vegas earlier in the week after going haywire on several ER personnel.

The actor was arrested on Tuesday, February 13, when the local police proceeded to book him for gross misdemeanour battery per a report first published by TMZ.

In his mugshot, he appeared wide-eyed, and there were visible scratches and traces of blood around his eyebrows.

Minutes before his arrest, local law enforcement officers were sent to UMC Hospital after the ER personnel submitted an assault and battery report.

Excerpts from the report show Austin had allegedly assaulted several nurses, punching one in the head, pushing a phlebotomist into a table and shoving the head of another nurse. And this is in addition to attacking another member of staff.

Although he has been in the Hollywood scene for a while, North is best known for his role as Topper on the hit TV show, where he stars alongside Chase Stokes and Madelyn Cline.

The hit Netflix series, with three seasons to date and a fourth season expected later in 2024, has seen his fame rise to new proportions, and one can only hope that this arrest doesn’t impact his career.
