As you may recall, ER’s Noah Wyle landed himself in a real life emergency sitch after being thrown in the slammer during a Medicaid protest in Washington, D.C. earlier this year.
Although the courts laid the law down, there was one person that had his back - his son Owen.
The hawt dad admits that explaining the “complex issue” of his arrest to a child was hard but necessary!!!
"I did talk to my son after I got released early the next morning. I called him before school, and I explained what happened and that I was okay."
[I] kind of explained it in as simple terms as possible, and I thought I was going on a little bit too long and I may have lost him, but as soon as I stopped talking, he just jumped in and said, 'I think you did the right thing, Dad.'"
The proud dad goes on to say:
"It brought tears to my eyes then, and it does now thinking about it. It was great."
We know that 9 year-olds are more than capable of standing up for what they believe in, and it’s great to see that Owen has such a stand-up guy for a dad!!!
