Actor raised in Hawaii charged in NYC brawl
NEW YORK » A TV soap star raised in Hawaii has been released without bail following his arraignment on assault and other charges stemming from an altercation in midtown Manhattan.
Nathaniel Marston, 32, who plays Dr. Michael McBain on the ABC daytime show "One Life to Live," attacked three men with a crate around 4:30 a.m. Sunday at 10th Avenue and 45th Street, according to a felony complaint filed in Manhattan Criminal Court.
Marston struck one man on the hand; hit another in the back of the neck, causing bruising and swelling; and sent the third man to the hospital with a broken leg, the complaint said.
Jennifer Kushner, spokeswoman for the Manhattan district attorney's office, said Marston also was treated at Bellevue Hospital Center for scrapes and bruises.
Marston's lawyer, Tom Klein, declined to comment.
Marston was charged with four counts of second-degree assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest. He was released without bail and is scheduled to be back in court on Feb. 4, 2008.
Marston, a Connecticut native who grew up in Hawaii and California, has been on "One Life to Live" since 2001, according to Soap Opera Digest.
