Supernatural Co-Star Beaten

D.J. Qualls was shooting Supernatural last Friday, when he was severely beaten by Vancouver police. Qualls witnessed a fight and when he tried to tell an officer what he saw he was attacked. He's okay, but he took to this twitter account to demand justice. You can read the complete article here.

You'll see Qualls in the SPN episode entitled "Time for a Wedding." He plays a laid back hunter named Garth who annoys Dean.

That's terrible! Qualls is also on another show I like, Memphis Beat. Can't wait to see him on Supernatural.

I hope if his account is true, the officer loses his badge and is prosecuted for assault. Huge abuse of power, and will make people afraid to ever do the right thing!

I'm looking forward to seeing him on SPN too, Melissa. I've always like his quirkiness.

TerriClark said...

Agreed, Nat. If you read D.J.'s follow up tweets he says the department is actually working on this with him.

Good to hear! One of the articles made it sound like that would be the case, that they'd already launched an investigation based on the tweets and media reports. That can be a case of saying the right thing, though.

Vancouver Police Dude - you can't make up for the crappy job the force did with the Stanley Cup riots by taking it out on one American actor. Not good for PR.
