Disturbance At American Pie Actor’s Home
The boys from the American Pie films got themselves into some crazy sexual hijinks on-screen but a real-life hookup for the actor who played Finch proved to be anything but comical. A SWAT team had to be called to the home of Eddie Kaye Thomas to break up a domestic disturbance on Wednesday (April 17th) after a woman that he met less than 24 hours earlier pulled a knife and threatened to kill him.
According to TMZ, the actor met the woman at Mel’s Diner the night before and had spent the whole night and day with her before an argument ensued and the threat of violence came. Thomas called 911 and there was a standoff that lasted several hours between the SWAT team and the woman who barricaded herself inside.
- Law enforcement sources told the website that the woman smashed a phone, a guitar, and basically just trashed the whole house before the cops used tear gas to get her out and take her into custody.
