Actor Tristan “Mack” Wilds was arrested last night in New York, and is currently sitting in the county jail. Police say that Tristan was driving his 2017 Jeep Wrangler with a suspended license.

Tristan is best known for his role on the CW series 90210. He made his acting debut playing Michael Lee in the critically acclaimed series “The Wire” 

Police pulled over Tristan as he drove his jeep through the Soho area of Manhattan last night. Detectives claim that they stopped Tristan because his jeep had tinted windows, which is illegal in New York.

When police ran Tristan's license through their computers, they claim that it came back as suspended. They also claim that Tristan had an "active warrant,"

The actor was arrested and charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. 

According to the NY Post, which first broke this story, Tristan spent the night in jail until he's arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court on Wednesday morning.

He agreed to pay all his summonses by his next court date, July 17, in exchange for a dismissal of the charges.

He also had a warrant for an unrelated open summons stemming from an incident in Staten Island, which the judge said would be dismissed in six months if he stays out of trouble.

Wilds has played supporting roles opposite Ryan Gosling in the film “Half Nelson” and Dakota Fanning in “The Secret Lives of Bees.”

In 2015, Wilds starred in Adele’s music video “Hello” as her love interest.

Wilds, performing under the name Mack Wilds, has released two rap albums, including a single that was nominated for a Grammy.
