    Smallville Actor Busted for Hillbilly Heroin

    Has Sam Jones been hanging out with Adam Jasinski? Sure seems it.
    For the second time in two days, a C D-list celeb (apologies to Kathy Griffin) was arrested by Drug Enforcement Administration agents for illegally pushing oxycodone.

    Today's target: former Smallville actor Jones, who this morning was busted at his Canoga Park, Calif., home for his role as an alleged coconspirator in a series of big-time drug deals last year which, all told, involved him moving more than 10,000 of the blue painkillers, otherwise known as hillbilly heroin (the Big Brother champ's 2,000 seems almost paltry in comparison).

    According to court documents obtained by E! Online, Clark Kent's onetime BFF was charged with conspiracy to possess and intent to distribute after authorities determined he was the "Hollywood connection" to illegally purchasing and distributing the drugs.

    He's expected to appear in federal court later today and, if convicted, could face up to 20 years behind bars.

    Guess we know what his kryptonite is.

    Smallville actor facing 20 years for drug charge

    [imgl=white][/imgl]Sam Jones III just went from Smallville to guilty town.

    The actor, best known as Clark Kent's former buddy on the long-running Superman series, today pleaded guilty in Los Angeles federal court to conspiracy to sell more than 10,000 oxycodone pills.

    So how did he go from small-screen good guy to a drug trafficker?

    Jones, 27, was busted at his Canoga Park, Calif., home last year for allegedly trying to sling the painkiller otherwise known as "hillbilly heroin."

    Today, he pleaded guilty as a coconspirator in the drug ring, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

    The feds arrested him after determining he was the "Hollywood connection" involved in the ring's illegal purchasing and distributing the drugs.

    Jones now faces up to 20 years behind bars when he is sentenced in June.

    His character in the show was worthless, just the token black kid. They dropped him like a hot beaker by the third season. But since that's what he's best known for...must've really gotten to him.
