Veteran soap star Michel Nader, 56, who has been on ABC's "All My Children" (as Count Dimitri Marick) since 1991, was among two dozen people arrested at around 6 a.m. Saturday in a drug raid at an illegal social club in Manhattan's East Village, say law authorities. Nader was charged with felony drug sale after detectives made undercover purchases, according to police, who say witnessed Nader selling a $20 bag of cocaine to a club patron. After his arrest, the actor said he felt ill, reports The New York Times, and he was taken to Bellevue Hospital for observation. This was not Nader's first arrest, the paper notes. In August of 1997, he was charged with drunken driving, resisting arrest and child endangerment after he was stopped for speeding on the Long Island Expressway. His 13-year-daughter was in the vehicle at the time, said The Times.
