TMZ is reporting that Josh Henderson, AKA The Hot Piece Who Wasn’t Jesse Metcalfe from Desperate Housewives or The Guy From The E! Show The Arrangement, has been cleared of a burglary charge. And how did this Sean Cody-looking piece almost get charged with burglary? It was that square jaw line of his.
What had happened was, one of Josh’s neighbors in his apartment building in L.A. got robbed of $7,000 worth of jewelry and stuff, and they called the police. They told the 5-0 they had security cameras from the building and while it was impossible to see their faces, the victim of the crime and a witness were “100% positive” that it was Josh who robbed them. Why? “His jawline and the way he moved”. Wow. All you nosey-neighbors are crime-scene experts now, eh?
Turns out: they were wrong. Because Josh had surveillance footage of his own, and it shows his front door never opening, which is the only way to get in and out of his unit. So unless man is teleporting, he ain’t no criminal.
So why was Josh arrested? The night it happened, the victim for some reason thought that actor Josh Henderson of Desperate Housewives-fame circa 2006/2007 was a psychopathic criminal and would come back later in the night “come into his apartment and hurt him.” The man was “scared to death”. So that same night Josh was arrested for burglary. Josh’s reaction:
“How could I have committed a burglary?”
Josh was released on $50,000 bail, and after reviewing his alibi they dropped the charges. The L.A. District Attorney’s Office said the case “was declined due to insufficient evidence.” Which happens when you literally didn’t do it.
Josh gave a statement to People about this:
“This has been an rough week for me. False accusations should never happen to anyone. Ever… I want to thank my friends and family for supporting me through this… I’m glad the truth is out and I can put this behind me.”
I can’t believe the police arrested this man because of grainy surveillance and a whiny victim but I’m glad Josh was cleared of the crime. Hot little thing like him in lockup? Ooh, honey: he’d be more popular than he ever was acting.
