‘One Tree Hill’ actor arrested

A supporting player on the U.S. television series One Tree Hill has been arrested for allegedly trafficking fake Social Security cards and stealing numbers.

Antwon Tanner, 34, plays basketball coach Antwon Skills Taylor on Tree.

The New York Post said Tanner is facing federal charges after investigators posed as buyers and ordered ID cards and numbers from him by phone and via the Internet, then allegedly received the documents from Tanner through the mail.

Tanner was released on $250,000 bond following his arraignment in Brooklyn federal court Thursday.

The Post said the Coach Carter and Never Die Alone actor, as well as his attorney, declined to comment on the case as they left the courthouse.
