Meghan Trainor’s husband Daryl Sabara charged with vandalizing a car


Daryl Sabrara is an actor who got his big break in Spy Kids. He’s worked as an actor his whole life, quite literally as his first role was as “Baby Brown” on Murphy Brown, that aired when he was just three months old. But these days, he’s probably better known as Meghan Trainor’s husband. I thought he seemed like such a nice guy. He likes to be silly with Meghan and seems to have no problem letting her star shine brighter than his. Unfortunately, we’ve just been made aware of a darker side to Daryl. Over the weekend, charges were filed against Daryl for vandalizing a car during an incident that took place in March. And they have him on tape.

Spy Kids star Daryl Sabara is in some legal trouble stemming from an alleged vandalism incident earlier this year, TMZ reported on Sunday.

In March, the 27-year-old actor and husband of singer Meghan Trainor was reportedly captured on surveillance video ripping off two custom side panels off a car parked near the UCLA campus, law enforcement sources told the outlet. No arrests were made at the time. Several days ago, charges were filed against Sabara—one for misdemeanor vandalism and one for tampering with a vehicle, another misdemeanor, court records show.

E! and TMZ both said that Daryl did not know the owner of the car so WTH? So much of this story is making me scratch my head, actually. Outlets are all reporting that the panels destroyed were custom, the owner must have been ticked to see their investment destroyed by some famous person they’ve never met, possibly just for fun. I’m sure there’s a legal reason, but why did it take seven months for the charges to be filed? Maybe the car’s owner tried to work the financial part out without pressing charges. And how did Daryl, who is not exactly a body builder, tear car panels off? That sounds like he had help from either adrenaline or perhaps something more recreational. Whatever it was, it was a crappy thing to do and even if he was out of his mind for whatever reason, he should have made it right. Which brings up a second set of questions, like did he not know he was caught on camera? I find it unlikely that they have video of his crime and it didn’t get back to him before now. The whole thing is very odd. Daryl has not been arrested as of this writing, but his arraignment is set for November 20.

I think the part’s also creeping me out is that we just covered how Meghan ‘jokingly’ said she and her brothers call Daryl a serial killer. She claimed it was because he never eats sauce but she also said he, “looks crazy in a lot of pictures,” and, “he does, like, suspicious things,” such as spending all day at movies by himself. It was all kind of funny at the time but not as much with this new information.

    I’ve done stupid things so I will not judge.

    This sounds like a random story and i hope it’s a one off.

  2. Erinn says:

    This is a really weird story. The only thing I could think of about charges being so late is that they had initially tried to work something out, and negotiations must have fallen through?

    I don’t know. It’s weird. It’s weird ALL around.

    At least to my knowledge he hasn’t really been in trouble before? Like I’ve never heard about him being an absolute mess for years or anything like that. Hopefully this was just a weird reaction to a medication, or a dumb drunk escapade that he’s going to actually learn from.

    Scrolling through, I thought that was Lena Dunham with a really bad haircut.

    The story is so weird, I have to think there was some substance or medication involved.

    • Carol says:

      LOL! So did I! He looks like Lena with short hair.

      Anyway, this is a bizarro story. I wonder what set him off and why that car? I’m guessing its either road rage from an earlier in the day episode or he knew the owner. Hopefully, it will all get resolved and the guy can seek whatever help he needs.

    Maybe he’s mentally ill? The average age of onset of many serious mental illnesses is mid 20s and he’s 26. Maybe he’s bipolar like Britney.

    • bub244 says:

      It’s certainly not typical behaviour associated with that diagnosis. Sometimes people can do crappy things to each other, no mental health or substance issues required.

    Tim Scottson. Weeds.
    Dead bunnies, named Peter, and a sniper rifle.
    That’s probably why I get creepy vibes from him.
    Though at the end of that show, he is seemingly rehabilitated.

    • TeddyPicker says:

      Yesssssss. I’ll always associate him with Weeds – it’s definitely his creepiest character and I think that’s where Meghan’s comments come from.

      Very odd story though.

  6. Amy Too says:

    What was on the custom panels? Like if they were huge rolling advertisements for Trump or anti-abortion or something, it might make more sense for someone to just tear them off or vandalize them, especially if they were drunk or high or just feeling really “politically active” at the moment. Since he apparently didn’t know the person who owned the car, it seems like it’s something about the car itself that led him to tear off the panels? It would still be weird and wrong, and he should still be charged, but it would at least make a little bit of sense. But if the panels were just like airbrushed flames and he didn’t know the person who owned the car, then why? Was he just feeling particularly violent and anarchic that day? What a bizarre story.

    • MC2 says:

      This was my question too! I have never vandalized anything, but have I wanted to rip a car apart for something on it? A resounding yes! What were the panels?! He destroyed both & only the panels, so I’m very curious. And destroying property is wrong, but I’ll reserve my judgement until we find out.

  7. JanetFerber says:

    KittyKat, I agree. A stupid (drunken?) thing to do, but this may well be a dumb one-off like you said. I hope people don’t condemn him forever for this basically immature asinine act. I like Meghan a lot and hope this works out well.

  8. Kittycat says:

    Yikes, that serial killer comment is creepy. Many a true word is spoken in jest.

  9. Deehunny says:

    On RPDR the queens said that Megan trailer was wasted and was the worst guest judge. Voted for who was bad intentionally (opposite) and overall the queens were not happy with her behavior. Maybe it takes 2 to tango?
