London: Actor Adam Deacon has been arrested after failing to appear in court. The 31-year-old 'Babylon' actor was due to appear at Hammersmith Magistrates' Court, accused of harassing actor and director Noel Clarke, reported BBC online.

However, an arrest warrant was issued after Deacon did not arrive at court as scheduled. He was taken into custody. Deacon is accused of one count of harassment without violence between March 5 and December 19, 2014, after allegedly posting abusive and threatening messages relating to Clarke on social media.

He was first charged on December 20, with his bail conditions stating that he was not to contact Clarke or any of his family or friends. He was also not allowed to post anything relating to Clarke online.

Deacon is also known for his roles in 'Kidulthood' and 'Adulthood'.
