Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Evans was arrested Tuesday evening when he tried to score narcotics from a LAPD officer posing as a dealer.
Evans, who played Officer Oliver Fish on OLTL, was booked at 6:15 p.m. for attempt to possess a controlled substance, a felony. He bailed out around 12:30 a.m.
It's unclear what drug Evans was trying to buy.
Evans reacted to the bust with a Facebook post early this morning: "Most ridiculous night of my life in LA so far. At least I made it a year before getting arrested."
Evans is currently filming the Selena Gomez movie Behaving Badly.
