‘PLL’ actor Brandon Jones gets jail time for neighbor gun spat
“Pretty Little Liars” actor Brandon Jones was sentenced to 180 days in jail after he pointed a gun at a neighbor during an argument, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said Monday.
Jones, 29, plead no contest to one misdemeanor count of assault with a firearm, and in addition to his jail time, also received three years probation, 30 days of community labor and 26 anger management classes.
The sentence stems from an October 2015 spat in which Jones pulled out a handgun during an argument with a neighbor at his North Hills, Calif., home, prosecutors said.
In a separate March 2016 incident, Jones also pointed a handgun at a neighbor, and brandished a knife.
It remains unclear if the arguments involved the same neighbor.
Jones is best known for his recurring role on the popular Freeform series “Pretty Little Liars.” He appeared in several episodes as Andrew Campbell, a student at Rosewood High School who harbored a crush on Spencer (Troian Bellisario), his Decathlon teammate. His character also briefly romanced Aria (Lucy Hale).
The actor also appeared in two episodes of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” as Brandon and six episodes of “The Fosters” as Liam Olmstead.
His most recent role was in the CBS drama “Doubt,” where he played Brandon Decker for two episodes.
Jones initially faced more than five years in prison.
