Disney actor Stoney Westmoreland fired after arrest

"Stoney Westmoreland, an actor working on the series Andi Mack, was arrested in Salt Lake City today", a Disney Channel representative told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement on Friday night.

Westmoreland then went to a location in Salt Lake City, "in order to pick up the person who he believed to be 13 years old and take back to his hotel room in order to engage in sexual activity", the affidavit said.

Hours after the arrest was made on Friday, Disney Channel cut ties with the Andi Mack star.

Westmoreland was charged with enticing a minor by Internet or text, which is a second-degree felony, as well as four counts of dealing in materials harmful to minors, which is a third-degree felony.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Westmoreland allegedly used a dating app to connect with a person who identified as a 13-year-old boy. Westmoreland continued to chat with the teen and "send images of himself" before taking a ride-sharing vehicle with the intent to meet the individual.

The incident took place in Utah, where Andi Mack films.

An affidavit filed in Salt Lake City's 3rd District Court, and obtained by Utah TV station KSL, alleged that Westmoreland began communicating online with a person he believed was only 13 years old "on an Internet app used for dating and meeting people for the objective of engaging in sexual activity".

Westmoreland, who plays the family grandfather on the network's hit family comedy-drama TV series, was arrested by Salt Lake police on December 14.

According to an affidavit filed in 3rd District Court, Stoney was on his way to allegedly meet the minor when the Salt Lake City Police Department and FBI Child Exploitation Task Force arrested him.

Westmoreland later attempted to meet the victim for sex through a ride-sharing app he used to order the victim a auto.
