Dylan Patton made a name for himself playing Will Horton on NBC's daytime soap, "Days of Our Lives" from 2009 to 2010. But according to TMZ, the 20-year-old actor has allegedly been dabbling in drug dealing.

Authorities reportedly arrested Patton in a raid on his home in Los Angeles County on Tuesday after an undercover police officer successfully purchased cocaine from him.

The Los Angeles Times reported Thursday that Patton sold the drug within 1,000 feet of Sumac Elementary School and faces up to nine years jail time for sale of a controlled substance.

Before "Days of Our Lives," Patton appeared in episodes of "That's So Raven" and "Cold Case."
