He said: “I was arrested multiple x”s [times] as a teen (fighting/stupid s**t) Said if I can make it, so can you. Stay strong #LockUp. (sic)” The 41-year-old actor has spoken before about his past and has explained he didn”t see the “potential” he had until years after his “eight or nine” teenage arrests. He previously revealed: “I got in trouble a lot when I was younger.

By the time I was 16, I had been arrested eight or nine times for a variety of things, terrible things that I shouldn”t have been doing. “Much later in life, once I got out of college, I started to understand the power of seeing your potential and what that means.”

Clearly he sees potential in the locked-up men and is encouraging them to get their lives straight…just as he did.
