Hicks, along with his girlfriend, is accused of committing a handful of robberies in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, area and approaching their victims armed with a gun. The pair are alleged to have stolen money, mobile phones, and other personal items.

We’ve not heard from the actor on social media since December, where he cryptically tweeted this to his 682,000 followers: ‘May 1 2018’, followed by the hashtag ‘Blessed’.


The actor has previously been arrested twice: one time for being in possession of and firing a gun and a second time for battery.

Hicks appeared in all but one of the 78 episodes of Zeke and Luther, as Luther, between 2009- 12. Roles in TV shows Pair of Kings and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation followed, before appearing in the 2015 Jennifer Lopez-led The Boy Next Door.
