“One Tree Hill” Star Arrested for Social Security Scam

"One Tree Hill" actor Antwon Tanner was arrested in New York City Thursday for an alleged Social Security card swindling scheme, the New York Post reported.

Cops nabbed Tanner -- who's 34 in real life, but plays a high-school senior on the CW show -- when he surrendered to federal prosecutors early Thursday morning.

Tanner's character on "One Tree Hill" is a high-achieving basketball star nicknamed "Skills" who's also a notorious ladies man.

He allegedly transferred Social Security cards "knowingly and intentionally" as part of a fraud scheme, cops said.

Tanner also acted alongside Samuel L. Jackson in feel-good basketball flick "Coach Carter" and has appeared on TV shows like "Moesha" and "Sister, Sister."

He's set to be arraigned in Brooklyn Criminal Court on Tuesday.
