News
Report: Officials worried about 'Anarchy' actor
by Laura Matovina


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A probation report shows officials expressed serious concerns about the mental health of a former "Sons of Anarchy" actor suspected of killing his landlady before falling or jumping to his death in Los Angeles.

The report was prepared in May, three months before Johnny Lewis was sentenced for trying to break into a woman's home in Santa Monica.

The report states the officer's belief that Lewis, who was identified as a transient, would "continue to be a threat to any community" in which he lived unless he got help. The officer also stated he believed the actor suffered from serious chemical dependency or mental health issues.

Lewis was released a week before he is believed to have killed his landlady and her cat Wednesday.
