Blue Bloods actress Sami Gayle had brush with the law over fake drugs

Blue Bloods star Sami Gayle had a close call with New Jersey police last year (13) after accidentally leaving a packet of fake drugs in her coat pocket after a day of filming the crime drama.

The teen actress reveals she had worn her own jacket to shoot scenes for the hit TV series, in which she plays Nicky Reagan-Boyle, the niece of Donnie Wahlberg's detective character, Danny Reagan, but she forgot to take out the prop powder when she finished work - and it fell out at the most inopportune time.

She explains, "I was shooting an episode a few months before Thanksgiving... we were driving through New Jersey to visit my grandmother and we were in a car accident, somebody rear-ended us, and when the police came, they saw me and they were like, 'Oh, we love your show, can we get a picture?'. I got out of the car and took pictures and the policemen had a squad car and I was like, 'You know, it's so funny, I'm in a police show but I've never been in a squad car and taken pictures, so can I do that?' And they said, 'Absolutely.'

"I had been wearing my coat on set that day, we had been filming with the fake heroin packets, so I went to pull my phone out of my coat and out falls the fake boogeyman packets! But I had the name of the script on my phone and we sort of made nice on the situation by showing them that, but it was definitely very frightening!"
