Brandon "Bug" Hall is an actor best known for his childhood roles as Alfalfa in The Little Rascals and Buster Stupid in The Stupids. He and five others in the cast of The Little Rascals won a Young Artist Award for Best Performance by a Youth Ensemble in a Motion Picture.
He will perhaps be best known for something else now.
TMZ broke the story that Bug Hall was arrested over the weekend in a Weatherford, TX hotel. Police officers responded to a call for a possible OD.
When speaking to TMZ, Weatherford PD said that a member of Bug's family had called asking for a welfare check. Upon arrival, officers saw air duster cans strewn about the residence. When asked if he had been inhaling from the cans, bugs admitted it. He was arrested for misdemeanor possession for use to inhale or ingest a volatile chemical. Bugs went peacefully with peacefully.
Hopefully, this serves as a wake-up call for him to get the help he must need. The actor is married with two young children.
Canned air is essentially a toxic poison that is not meant to be inhaled, according to the safety information for Dust-Off . "Dusting" or "huffing" these products can have negative immediate and long-term consequences.
