Daytime Emmy winner, Tyler Christopher (ex-Stefan, DAYS; ex-Nikolas, GH), who was arrested back on November 11th for public intoxication, pled guilty to two counts of misdemeanor public intoxication, according to a report from TMZ.

The report also notes that the judge in the case rejected the plea of a police officer who begged the court to put Tyler into an alcoholism treatment program.

As previously reported, Tyler was booked on his birthday and was behind bars for two days until being released.  The incident happened in Indiana, where the actor has been residing with his family.

For the public intoxication incident, Christopher will need to pay a $440 fine.

In addition, police noted that they had received multiple calls about Tyler being intoxicated since September 14.

We hate reporting this difficult news.  All of is in the daytime community love Tyler and wish him well and want the best for him.  He is one of the finest actors ever in this genre.

Some judge that won’t reach out& help Tyler at least the cops tried

So sad. Wish he had reached out to someone–like Genie Francis, who worked with him and is
so generous and empathetic: she could offer moral support–for help. Perhaps he did or he will. I hope he will get the help he needs. I understand he is writing a book; maybe he can help someone else–let them know that it is nothing to be ashamed of–IF one goes and gets treated. He needs to get his life back; his creativity can help him sustain sobriety perhaps.

I have read reports that he allegedly lost the role of Stefan due to showing up on the set intoxicated. I read he and his wife separated earlier this year. Now, Tyler is arrested for public intoxication. I have seen too many people being given too many opportunities to get clean before they decide they have a problem. I hope he knows he might have an issue and needs to address it.

Tyler needs help, he needs to go back to rehab. If he is not serious, things will not end well. I feel bad for him.

Perhaps if Tyler’s Personal life was not made public to be scrutinized and picked at he wouldn’t feel his need to drown it out by drinking.
Nobody, nobody, can stop a person a get them help to stop drinking, that decision is Tylers.
His family can support Tyler but the decision is his.
And (all) the public putting their noses into his business will only worsen his situation.

I didn’t realize he had such a problem. By the first article, I thought he drank too much on his birthday and did something stupid like swim naked in the town’s fountain, but this is obviously not a one time thing for him.

Unfortunately ordering someone into treatment isn’t as effective as him going for it willingly. Like the cop, I think I rather see him in treatment even if it didn’t stick, in hopes maybe something would eventually.

This is a disease, and it is a disease that can be managed, but only if the person is willing to do the work– otherwise the disease wins. I hope this isn’t his fate– so many truly gifted people have traveled this path, but it seems no one ever learns the lesson from others, they have to go down that road themselves.

The judge is a real bozo (that’s the most minor word I can come up with..I have tons of other names I would rather use). At least if Tyler had been court ordered to go into a program, he might have a chance to see what he’s doing to himself. I am in recovery but I went through alot of Hell before I got there. Shame on his Honor!!!

Completely agree with what you’ve said James…
The judge had the law & authority to HELP Tyler see reason, yet chose not to do so…shameful !

James, wise words.Court ordered issued programs are essential! They are not only essential for folks who cannot afford the expensive, out-of-pocket rehab facilities, they are essential because the judge can impose a program which exceeds the thirty day sentence. Listen, thirty days is not enough! I have been through this time and time again with loved ones, and I can tell you that judges who hand down these tough-love sentences are saving lives.

Prayers to Tyler and to his children. Tyler is so talented and is missed on #GH.

First of Tyler has all my best wishes but secondly he needs to get the hell out of Indiana. I lived there a long time ago, and that place would drive anyone to drink! My apologies to any offended Hoosiers.

I really wish Tyler could get his addiction under control and get his life together. Most importantly, for himself & his family. Beyond that though… the new Nik recast really sucks, and I’d really like to see the true “Dark Prince” return one day.

If the reports are true that he has been on a two month bender checked himself out of rehab the man’s next stop is the grave and let’s hope he does not take innocent people with him.

Abby

What kind of judge is he that he refuses to help someone who actually needs the help. Tyler is obviously one of those people who needs a professional to help him overcome his addiction and go back to a life with his wife and children. Any judge who denies a person clearly in need of help does not belong sitting on the bench. His job should be help get him on the right path if he can. Tyler is not a criminal, just someone who lost his way. FIND A REAL JUDGE.

First thing is for him to freely admit he has a drinking problem.Otherwise no one will be able to help him.

If this is his first offensive, he want to see, the judge might want to see if he repeats himself, then you a problem. I’ve been arrested for an accident in my car, and I didn’t make the news, I had to deal with a problem and I have for 25 years, not a drop, but I had to be willing to do the challenge to save my life. Let’s hope and pray he has no more troubles.

First he needs to find out if drinking is a problem, if yes then he needs help, if he wants help go to AA, if you want to lay around at and be a slug at the Malibu spa, that’s not going to help. It’s your head you need to know. If I drink, I drink until I pass out. , one time I was outside at a party and I was slurping, talking, with some one and I passed out and hit my head on a rock. For days my head hurt. Things happen if your drinking, he should talk to a very close friend or professional. God Bless You

I’m sorry to hear bout Tyler Christopher’s problem. Love him as an actor since 1996 his debut on GH. I think publicly humiliating him isn’t necessary. I grew up with an alcoholic dad it’s tough for his children and wife also. Praying for his wife and children it’s hard to have your parent drink uncontrolled. Pray he gets help but he has to want to quit !!

For someone with a less than fragile, emotional “composition”, alcohol is a silent, comforting companion—-for others, it could be drugs and also food.
It is so easy to fall into the trap, per se—I never resorted to any of the above when I went through my dark days —-I have a strong mind and even stronger family support.
I truly feel sorry for Tyler—Lord only knows what drives him—-none of us is perfect and none of us has the right to judge. I saw enough of life’s sorrows while I was doing charity work—-capitulating into the pitfalls of any addiction is nothing for which anyone wishes upon himself.
I wish him the best, in the hope that he does get help. After all is said and done, it is the kids who suffer the repercussions the most. Bless you, Tyler. Stay focused.

I hope somoene will convince Tyler to get the help he needs.I wish his friends at GH and DOOL would get together and do an intervention for him and convince him to go into treatment. I doubt DOOL or GH will ever rehire him.

Shame on that Judge who could ultimately be responsible by refusing to put the actor (who obviously is in crisis) in treatment. God forbid Tyler loses his life or gets behind the wheel of a car and takes some innocent person’s life. A selfish, bad decision by a Judge in Bucks County PA (Jeffrey Trauger) was directly responsible for the death of a 7 year old girl in 2018. Good riddance to the Judges who play God instead of making decisions that are truly right & just and best for all. God bless the police officer who is truly trying to protect & prevent a future tragedy.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sonny Goes Off On Scheming Gabi & This Week Maggie Remembers The Night Adrienne Was Killed

Things are definitely reaching a boiling point in Salem.  First, if you caught last Friday’s episode, it featured a terrific scene between Freddie Smith (Sonny) and Camila Banus (Gabi) that shook everyone to its core.   Gabi, who has now been arrested at the PCPD for her crimes against Julie and her schemes against Lani, gets a visit from Sonny, and boy is he angry.  At the time of their visit, Justin (Wally Kurth) has already told Sonny that he doubts there is any way that Gabi will avoid prison time.

Realizing that both Ari’s parents are looking like they will be in prison, he asks Gabi, “Who gets the fun job of explaining this to Ari?” Ari loves Julie. He exclaims,”How I am supposed to explain that her mother tried to kill her multiple times?”

Distraught and thus facing parenting alone, Sonny screams at Gabi if she even knows her daughter exists!?  Gabi thinks Sonny is being horrible to her, but stands by her actions that Julie needed to pay.  Sonny just shakes his head in disbelief.  Ari’s parents will both be in the slammer!  When DA James Giddens arrives (Terrell Tilford) he says that Gabi will get 10 years in prison with no time off for good behavior and no parole.   In these scenes. Smith and Banus really delivered the material and brought it to an emotional level that hit home to the viewers.

And now this week, get ready for more drama.  Gabi may get a last minute reprieve, while Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) is so close to remembering what happened the night of the accident that killed Adrienne (Judi Evans) – how she was drunk in a car that caused the crash – and the victim of this is not only Adrienne, but Will (Chandler Massey) who was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit.

Mansi follows on the heels of such fan favorite actresses as: Alison Sweeney (Sami, DAYS), Heather Tom (Katie, B&B), Cady McClain (Dixie and Rosanna Ex-AMC and ATWT) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin, GH) all who have eventually gone on to direct daytime and primetime episodes  of noted and successful series.

In the new DOOL app four-part series, From On-Stage to Behind-The-Scenes with Kate Mansi, the talented young actress learns the rigors and demands of working behind the camera in the fast world of daytime drama from Days of our Lives‘ director (and another Emmy winner) Sonia Blangiardo,who mentors Kate through the process.

The series talks about the current movement of having more female directors getting opportunities and be recognized for their work in film and TV, and the challenges a soap opera director faces every day: from dry block, where they work with the actors, working through their shot lists, and the ensuing problems that can arise in any production on the day to day.  But in soaps, the pressure is really on, because there is not much time to re-shoot things and to get them right.
