Dr. Michael McBain is hospitalized!
ABC has made the following statement regarding Nathaniel Marston's future with OLTL: "We are reviewing the matter internally, and until completion of this review we have taken him off the schedule."

One Life to Live's Nathaniel Marston, who plays Dr. Michael McBain ended up in Bellevue Hospital on Sunday, October 7 after allegedly attacking three people and brawling with city cops. According to the police report the incident took place in midtown New York at 45th Street and 10th Avenue. Police said the 6-foot-3 actor also appeared to be under the influence of narcotics, possibly cocaine. Marston, a former amateur boxer, assaulted his victims with a crate, which resulted in one of the victim's legs to be broken. As the officers tried to arrest him, Marston began flailing his arms and kicking at them.

Police charged Marston with two counts each of felony assault, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon as well as one count of resisting arrest. The officers who brought Marston into the hospital labeled him as an emotionally disturbed person. According to witness Salvatore Cabibbo, who was having cup of coffee, said he saw Marston hop out of a taxi and start to argue with the driver. The witness reported Marston then shouted, "I'm going to get you," while charging at Cabibbo and swinging a metal crate. The 46 year old Cabibbo stated, "He was crazed - I don't know the guy from a hole in the wall. I've never seen anything like that."

According to inside sources, Marston has been an emotional wreck recently, and the week prior to this incident there was supposedly some sort of big blowup on the set of OLTL, which may or may not be related to his behavior.

Back in 1999, Marston was arrested on criminal mischief charges after he punched and damaged an automated-teller machine in Manhattan.

The 32-year old actor was born in Sharon, Connecticut on July 9, 1975. In 2001, Marston was hired by OLTL to play the part of Al Holden, however in July 2003, Marston was suddenly fired, causing a huge protest amongst his fans. ABC received thousands of letters which eventually led ABC to rehire him in 2004, but in the new role of Dr. Michael McBain. (Which if fans remember is actually the reincarnation of Al Holden.)

According to Carolyn Hinsey, editor of SOW, this latest incident is not going to go over well with ABC this time. "He is definitely going to lose his job. They've given him chance after chance after chance." ABC has been informed of the situation with Marston, however there has been no official comment on the actor's status with the show.
