The UK-born actor, who plays Jonathan Byers in the hit Netflix show, was reportedly detained at Los Angeles’ LAX Airport last Thursday after allegedly being found with trace amounts of cocaine in his luggage.

Reports suggested Heaton was denied entry to the US by airport officials and was put on a plane back to London.

Law enforcement officials told The Hollywood Reporter that Heaton admitted the consumption of drugs to them, but he was not arrested.

Media reports claimed the 23-year-old was stopped after traces of cocaine were found in his luggage.

But now Heaton has issued a statement saying he “was not arrested or charged with a crime” last week.

“My planned travel to the US last week was affected by an issue at US immigration, and I am working to rectify it as soon as possible,” he said in a statement released to several US outlets.

“I do want to clarify that I was not arrested or charged with a crime, and cooperated fully with the US officials at LAX (Los Angeles International Airport).

“I’m sorry to all the fans and my Stranger Things family for missing the premiere.

“We are all so proud of this season and I would never want this story to negatively impact the show.

Heaton wasn’t the only star to miss the Stranger Things premiere.

David Harbour, who plays Hawkins Police Chief Jim Hopper, was in Bulgaria working.

Season two of Stranger Things arrived on Netflix last Friday.
