'One Tree Hill' Actor Antwon Tanner Gets Prison

An actor from the popular TV drama "One Tree Hill" will spend three months in prison for dealing in stolen Social Security numbers.

A Brooklyn judge ordered Antwon Tanner on Wednesday to report to prison on April 30. He'll serve five months in home detention after he's released.

Tanner is known for his TV role as a high school basketball star-turned-coach. He also appeared with Samuel L. Jackson in the 2005 movie "Coach Carter."

He admitted selling more than a dozen Social Security numbers for $10,000 to an undercover agent.

He described the incident as "an embarrassment" to his family and fans.

His lawyer blamed it on "stupidity." Gregory Watts said Tanner suffered financial reversals and lost a $1-million house in California to foreclosure.
