Soap opera actor in hospital after allegedly attacking three

A soap opera star who plays a doctor on "One Life to Live" ended up in a real hospital after allegedly attacking three people in midtown and brawling with city cops.

Nathaniel Marston, 32, who plays Dr.Michael McBain on the ABC soap, assaulted his victims with a crate, breaking one man's leg Sunday in the 4:50 a.m. incident at 45th St. and 10th Ave., cops said.

Police said the 6-foot-3 actor appeared to be under the influence of narcotics, possibly cocaine, when they were called to the scene. Marston, a former amateur boxer, began flailing his arms and kicking at officers as they went to arrest him, officials said.

"I don't want to talk to you, and please don't ever come to my home," Marston told the Daily News Sunday after his release from Bellevue Hospital.

He answered the door of his midtown apartment bare-chested, sporting a fresh bruise over his left eye.

Marston was charged with two counts each of felony assault, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon as well as one count of resisting arrest. He was taken to Bellevue, where he was labeled an emotionally disturbed person, police said.

Salvatore Cabibbo was having a cup of coffee when, he said, Marston hopped out of a taxi and started arguing with the driver.

Shouting "I'm going to get you," Marston inexplicably charged at Cabibbo swinging the metal crate.

"He was crazed - I don't know the guy from a hole in the wall," said Cabibbo, 46. "I've never seen anything like that."

The raging Marston struck a glancing blow to Cabibbo, he said, then kept on running into a gas station nearby, almost getting hit as he dashed into traffic on 10th Ave.

A source said Marston has been an emotional wreck in recent days, and last week his behavior led to a blowup on the set of "One Life to Live."

He has admitted to anger problems in the past that stem from a childhood learning disability. "I was the kid who'd sit there in class, real quiet, didn't scream or yell until someone would mess with me. And then I'd explode: boom! It was fierce and violent," Marston said in a 2003 interview with Soap Opera Weekly.

The actor was arrested in October 1999 on criminal mischief charges after he punched and damaged an automated-teller machine in Manhattan, police said.

Connecticut-born Marston assumed the role of Dr. Michael McBain in 2001. When he was suddenly fired in July 2003, thousands of fans wrote in protesting his dismissal until ABC rehired him.

"He is definitely going to lose his job. They've given him chance after chance after chance," said Carolyn Hinsey, editor of Soap Opera Weekly and a soap opera columnist for The News.

I think there's at least some parts missing to this story. Cabibbo's having coffee, Marston gets out of a cab arguing with the driver then "inexplicably" charges at Cabibbo with some metal crate?


Sounds like Jean Passanante wrote that segment of the article. The plot jumped from A to G missing beats B, C, D, E and F.

In the words of ABCD's early 2000s campaign, there's more to the story...

    • Hope so. The current opening is as dull as the show. Some more current and flattering shots would be good especially for MTS. And maybe some variety in the shots rather than having the actors in the same outfit -and sometimes the same pose- in the close up and background shot.
    • BFTD Stories That Stood Out:   Y&R   Victor and the Takeover. I remember that being such a big deal and well drawn out forever and day. And being annoyed every time Victor would be close to leaving and then...something would stall it. And the fallout was something else.    B&B   Does Sheila dying and popping up in L.A. count?   DAYS   I agree with whoever said Will's 2017 return. Not only did he come back...but he had the hots for his boyfriend's first love? If that ain't soapy...   GH   Brenda Barrett. Cuz...BRENDA. lol. That first return was EVERYTHING and while not dead in her other returns...the same thing happens that happened in that first return...instantly heavily attached to the canvas like she never left.   Katherine Bell and the Parapet. Can I mention that? Because it seem like she was dead, dead, dead...until that soapy dramatic Friday cliffhanger when she came into the court the spinning image of her savior Helena. The looks. The fashion. The music. It was PERFECTION. She got a little TOO big for her breeches, but it was still in her character to be that way.    OLTL   I liked the Tale of Two Todds. Though I did prefer Victor to Todd by the end. But crazy as it sounded and camp it had, I liked it then. Speaking of...   Marty's return in the form of Susan Haskell. The story might have been messy and I would probably feel different about it now if I rewatched it, but it was soap. And while the writing might have let me down, SH stayed fascinating to watch from story to story. And I liked that even though they wrote her wrong at the end, there was an attempt at least to course correct.     
    • She probably did bring it up lol.  This time, Brandi should have, if that’s what happened.  These women think they can go back into the fire and not get burned?!?  Like how did Phaedra and Vicky get out of addressing how they left their shows in disgrace, etc. on Ex-Wives s1?!?  Lolol However, Brandi is a tricky subject.  She is sooo desperate to be on Bravo that she will truly bring it… she’ll keep everything moving, but she takes it way too far and alienates herself from everyone.  And then no one will film with her.  And she also obviously can’t drink—she’s simply just not in control of herself, and this isn’t the environment for that because of all the triggers.  Like I’m sure she can get wasted around her real friends, like NY’s Kristen, and just be fun and crazy… but around these other Housewives where there is legit sabotage and paranoia happening, she just loses it.
    • Brandaon Barash and Isabella planned to get married in December. Then they changed their minds and got married (legally) shortly after they got engaged in the summer.  They had second wedding in December as a formal occasion for everyone to attend. Kirsten Storms (formerly Belle on Days, now Maxie on GH) and Brandon Barash were briefly together when he was playing Johnny on GH.  They have a daughter named Harper (who is now 9) and have coparented together every since.  Kirsten said a couple of months ago that she and Brandon were friends and tried a romance but it didn't work but they've remained friends all these years. Isabella was a camp counselor at a camp Harper attended.  Harper loved her and bonded with her first.  Brandon met her as "Harper's camp counselor".  So they met as adults who both cared about Harper.  I know Brandon is a lot older but Harper met Isa first.   The story is that Harper kept begging them to date and get married.  I saw an instagram post from Kirsten Storms indicating her approval. When BB proposed to Isabella, he gave her a diamond ring and he gave Harper diamond earrings, because they are a family together.   They knew each other for a while before they began dating. They dated for 2 or 3 years before he proposed. Her parents were there to assist with the surprise proposal. So after reading the entire story, my personal opinion is that it wasn't what I had assumed at first.  But of course I don't know anyone personally so I actually know nothing.
