Many people have been curious about how Bill Nye was arrested. Did he get arrested while testing one of his scientific experiments?

This may shock many fans, but Bill Nye got arrested at his house. The science guy was in custody in LA soon after he was arrested.

A satirical website posted this news online. This was enough for fans of the TV show host to go against the website. At first, everyone thought that this was a bad joke. However, the truth was soon revealed.

His fans were unwilling to accept that someone who had been a big part of their childhood had been arrested. They even trended a hashtag, “Free Bill Nye.” This does not make sense, as the former TV show host was arrested for a legitimate reason.

While the arrest took place almost 8 years ago, things have not yet settled for the science guy even today. The news broke down among people much later in the age of the internet even though it has been a lot of time since the incident took place.

He has been arrested once before for drug dealing, much before this event.

Bill Nye has been actively manufacturing drugs for quite some time. Besides this, this is not the first time he got arrested for the same reason. He had been arrested for manufacturing and selling drugs illegally many years ago.

He was not only possessing but making drugs on his own. Investigators were successful enough to find $6 million in cash and a whole lot of narcotics.

Whatsoever, a lot of media sources also claim that all of this was a hoax. Though cops blasted his house at night, he was not arrested for anything illegal. Nothing has been confirmed yet.

And even though he was arrested, the news ages back to eight years before the current time. Nye is a free man now, and there have been a lot of rumors about whether he had been arrested.

While many sources suggest otherwise, Bill Nye has been involved in drug dealing at least twice.

Nye has been working on his project for another series of Bill Nye’s The Science Guy, which will be the show’s sequel.

The show had been rumored to premiere on August 2022. Moreover, the show will be called The End is Nye. Regardless of his arrest rumors and failure to reach the fanbase with his controversial arrest, many of them are rooting for him even today.

Though the hashtag “Free Bill Nye” did not make sense, the fans eagerly spread their word to save Nye from the rumors with the help of this hashtag.

Amidst all the rumors and some toxic truth going around the lives of Bill Nye and his loyal fanbase, he has come up with some of the best programs for children and adults over the years.

This also includes the 2017 Netflix show Bill Nye Saves The World. This was mostly produced to cater to children eager to learn about science and other educational stuff. Likewise, the first show that made him famous among children in the old times was Bill Nye’s The Science Guy.

The show is quite famous among millennials and Gen-zs. The show also helped him earn the “the science guy” tag, which will likely last until the end.
