Knife-Wielding Woman Arrested at Hollywood Home of ‘American Pie’ Actor
A woman who armed herself with a knife and barricaded herself inside the Hollywood Hills home of “American Pie” actor Eddie Kaye Thomas, prompting a standoff of nearly six-and-a-half hours, was in custody Thursday after her arrest by an LAPD SWAT team that set off diversionary flash-bang grenades and fired teargas into the residence.
Police were called to the 2500 block of Hargrave Drive at 1:09 p.m. Wednesday, according to Los Angeles Police Department Officer Christopher No. He said the woman was in the house and pulled a knife on the property owner, who managed to escape and call police.
The home belongs to actor Eddie Kaye Thomas, 32, best known for his role as Paul Finch in the “American Pie” film series, said Officer J. Boyer of the LAPD’s Hollywood Station.
The woman spent the night at the home but became angry when she was asked to leave and armed herself with a knife, LAPD Lt. Andrew Neiman told reporters at the scene.
