Cops Catch Nude Days Star! "Last weekend, James Scott discovered that you're not allowed to sunbathe naked on beaches in Florida and you can, in fact, be arrested for it," chuckles the Days star (EJ) who had a close call with the law for going au naturel. Here's what happened; "I went to do a soap event and then drove out to St. George's Island - which is beautiful - and I walked for maybe a mile or two along the beach with my girlfriend," he explains. "I didn't see that it was particularly a problem, since I was in the middle of nowhere, on a nature sanctuary, for God's sake, so I thought to myself, 'I'll just take take my clothes off and lie in the sun, I had a great time."Scott was throwing a Frisbee when "a plump looking warden came up to me, looking at me sideways because he was afraid to look at anything other than sand, and he told me that he could arrest me. Of course, I thought he was joking, so I didn't take him particularly seriously. I told him that my name was EJ Wells because I thought it would be awfully clever on my arrest sheet, not realizing that they would want a lot of other information, like address and social security number. I was trying to persuade my girlfriend to say that her name was Samantha Roberts, but then we started to take it, a little more seriously when he said again that he could arrest us."Fortunately, Scott got off with a warning. "He didn't give me a ticket on the grounds that I was English and didn't really know better," says the actor. "How would I know something like that? I had absolutely no idea that it was illegal. I could understand if I was in the middle of South Beach (Miami) and there were kids around. That would be inappropriate. But I was in the middle of a nature reserve; there wasn't a person for miles around, except a beady little man with binoculars trying to spot bottoms and he spotted one." Unfortunately, Scott's girlfriend wasn't as lucky. "She got a fine because she is American and she should know better. Lesson learned."Casting About/Grapevine: Attention "Phloe" fans: Insiders says that DAYS is working on getting Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe) back for a story with Jay Kenneth Johnson's Phillip. Bjorlin last appearded in 2005, when Chloe married Brady and Moved to Europe. A show spokesperson says. "No comment at this time."

That is so funny, sounds like something that would happen on the show. He always gets away with things. LOL It is even more funny that his girlfriend got a ticket.

If they were going to ticket her, yes I do. Like I said, it falls in line with his character on tv, getting away with anything.

Uh, would anyone else in their right mind, foreign or not, go naked on a beach without checking if it was OK or not?

Now that would have been something to see! Too bad some uptight little jerk had to spoil their fun. In a remote place with no one in sight, and the guy was checking out with binoculars, he sounds like a perv to me.

Just goes to show that celebrities get away with everything. It makes me sick too. If it would have been any of us we probably would have been arrested. UGH, it irritates me that they can get away with everything just because they are stars. So they might be bringing Cloe back huh? Sounds interesting. :)

Yeah and maybe then Philip will leave Belle and Shawn alone so they can be together as a family for once without Philip interfering all the time. :)

I think he should have received the same fine. This just shows people that when your a star you can do whatever you wish and nothing will happen. I know why the spokesperson didn't want to comment.
