A commitment order states that Dezeen is considered 'a danger to himself and to those around him'.

It was also said that he was transferred to the Maryland Department of Health for treatment due to a mental disorder. The court ordered DeJean to remain under the health department's care until it was deemed no longer a threat.

Last April, it was reported that the 65-year-old had been taken into custody by local police after he attempted to forcibly break into a local nursing home. Locals noticed that the actor was being asked several times by the staff to leave the premises.

Dezeen was charged with one count of fourth-degree theft, two counts of trespassing, and breach of the peace. However, prosecutors changed the charges to assault and disorderly conduct.

This isn't the first time DeJean has had trouble with the law, as in 2021 it was reported via iHeart.com that he was accused of harassing and cyber-bullying a waitress.
