Did he do that?!
Darius McCrary, best known as Steve Urkel’s neighbor Eddie on Family Matters, was arrested and jailed on Wednesday, March 25, for being behind on his child support payments.
Authorities tell ‘TMZ’ the 38-year-old actor was ordered behind bars by a judge at family court in Oakland County, Mich. He was then given two options: either pay the $5,500 he owed to his baby mama, or make himself at home in jail — and stay there for two weeks.

Unsurprisingly, he picked the first option and was released after only a couple of hours in the big house.
Darius confirmed his arrest on Twitter, writing, “All I’m trying to do is raise my son,” also telling a supporter that he felt as if his arrest was “personal” against him.
The ‘Family Matters’ actor has one son, Zecheriah, who ‘TMZ’ estimates to be “five- or six-years-old.”
