Well this is kind of unusual. It seems like whenever we hear of a soap star being arrested for some kind of bad behavior it’s usually a guy. The latest story coming out of West Hollywood instead involves Crystal Hunt, a younger actress who is best known for her role as Lizzie Spaulding on Guiding Light. Apparently Hunt got into a bar room fight at Pearl’s Liquor Bar and was arrested for throwing a pint in another woman’s face. According to TMZ the woman required some sort of medical attention on the scene.
Hunt was booked on a felony assault with a deadly weapon charge Friday night. She was released from an LA jail after making bail on Saturday morning. While the actress hasn’t been seen on camera in a year or so her work on GL was strong enough to warrant an Emmy nod in 2005. She also spent a year on One Life to Live before fading from the spotlight a bit.
Info is still leaking out about this incident. I’m going to go out on a limb and bet that somehow there is a guy at the center of this mess. Fighting over a guy is one of the things that will motivate a bar room smack down and Hunt had to be pretty motivated to decide to hurl a pint at another chick’s face, right? Were you a fan of her work from GL? I realize that soaps seem to be a dying breed here but would you like to see Hunt pop up on one of the few remaining soaps? Or do you think she’s possibly now looking at jail time now which would make being offered a plum role pretty unlikely? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
