Scott Siegel, the actor who played Randy “The Ram” Robinson’s steroid dealer in the movie “The Wrestler,” was indicted yesterday for possessing and distributing steroids and assaulting law enforcement officers in a New York City suburb. If convicted, he faces up to 45 years in prison.
The case stems from Feb. 18 when federal drug agents and police tried to take him into custody on the steroid charges. Siegel jumped in the car and led police on a chase through Eastchester.
Siegel’s lawyer, Barry Levin, says his client acted out of fear. The actor is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in federal court in White Plains.
