Denzel Washington – Caterers From Actor’s Movie ‘The Equalizer 3’ Arrested In Cocaine Bust

Italian police allegedly raided hotel rooms for everyone involved in the filming of “The Equalizer 3,” starring Denzel Washington.

According to RadarOnline, the hotel rooms of those involved with Denzel Washington’s latest film were raided by police after a catering crew member passed away Monday night (Oct. 31) of a heart attack while filming on the Amalfi Coast of Italy. Allegedly, following the crew member’s death, several baggies of cocaine were discovered in his clothing, which made police suspect that there were more drugs on the Maori resort property.

Reports state that during the raid, Italian police discovered 120 grams of cocaine and arrested two members of the catering staff in connection to the drug crime. The catering vendors were placed on house arrest in their hotel rooms on alleged charges of drug possession. A third male catering staff member reportedly had his driver’s license revoked after cocaine was found in his possession.  The film’s crew had been in Italy working on the movie for four weeks prior to the death of the catering vendor and the drug bust.

“The Equalizer” is a film released in 2014 about a former U.S Marine turned DIA intelligence officer who protects a teenage prostitute from members of the Russian Mafia. It was labeled a commercial success receiving over $192 million at the box office. The sequel, “The Equalizer 2,” came out in 2018, grossing $190 million worldwide. “The Equalizer 3” is set to be released in September of 2023.
