“Blue Bloods” actor and hip-hop musician Eric Barrier arrested on October 28 on a 17-year-old warrant, according to NJ.com. Barrier, 56, allegedly became aware of the arrest warrant last month while he was being questioned by state police in Vermont.
NJ.com reports that Barrier pleaded guilty in January 2002 to aggravated assault and resisting arrest related to an incident in Ridgefield Park. On March 8, 2002, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed to appear in court for his sentencing.
The lawyer also said that Barrier’s previous lawyer told him “that his case was ‘dismissed’ because he was accepted into PTI (pre-trial intervention).” He claims that the actor never received a notice about his failure to appear in court. He added that his client is “literally at wits end and overcome with anxiety.”
