Disney Channel has fired Stoney Westmoreland after the “Andi Mack” actor was arrested in Utah for allegedly attempting to arrange sex with a 13-year-old yesterday. Westmoreland had played Ham Mack, the main character’s grandfather, in 38 episodes since the show’s premiere in 2017. Peyton Elizabeth Lee, who stars as the title character on “Andi Mack,” is 14.

According to BuzzFeed news, Westmoreland was using a dating app to speak with someone he believed to be 13 but was actually an undercover police officer. He’s being held on $30,000 bail.

“Stoney Westmoreland, an actor working on the series ‘Andi Mack,’ was arrested in Salt Lake City today,” said a Disney Channel spokesperson in a statement. “Given the nature of the charges and our responsibility for the welfare of employed minors, we have released him from his recurring role and he will not be returning to work on the series which wraps production on its third season next week.
