Jerseylicious star Tracy DiMarco’s husband, Corey Epstein was arrested in January among 24 people — 21 were indicted and three others will soon be charged — swept up in a 16-month probe dubbed “Silent Hill,” authorities said.
Epstein is accused of selling Oxycodone pills outside his New Springville home to an undercover cop Jan. 2.
Epstein, 23, could not be reached for comment, but his wife of five months brushed the charges aside, saying:
“The only thing my husband is guilty of is having a prescription”
DiMarco, 26, who sizzles on the cable docu-soap that chronicles life in a New Jersey hair salon. “We know the truth will come out.”
DiMarco said a friend of Epstein’s hit him up for some oxy, saying he had an arm injury, then cooperated with cops.
NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said the dealing “spanned across multiple neighborhoods on Staten Island and seeped into parks and areas near playgrounds and schools where innocent children would gather.”
Epstein made headlines last year when he reportedly got a $900,000 judgment for injuries he said he suffered in a Tribeca bar trying to break up a fight between two women.
Update on Jerseylicious:
Epstein is a recurring character in Jerseylicious. The sixth season of the show, which includes the marriage of Epstein and Dimarco, was due to air on the Style Network this year, but the network has been rebranded as the Esquire Network, which will not be running the show.
