Gay Porn Star Tom Faulk Is Back In Jail, This Time For Physically Assaulting A Family Member

Posted December 10, 2018 by with 28 comments

tomfauu-1024x612Gay porn star Tom Faulk is, unfortunately, back in jail for at least the second time this year. While his previous incarceration in October was for possession of methamphetamine and evading arrest, this time Faulk was arrested by police in Austin, Texas, for allegedly assaulting a family member and causing bodily injury. Booking report via Travis County Sheriff (Faulk’s legal name has been redacted):

Screen Shot 2018-12-07 at 8.11.21 PMThe Travis County Sheriff’s department did not release a mug shot with Faulk’s current arrest (the mug shot above was from his October arrest) or identify who the family member is, but they do note that while bond was set at $10,000, Faulk remains in custody.

Tom Faulk’s last tweet prior to his arrest on November 28th was on November 19th, and it contains a live video. In the video, Faulk talks about Facebook messages he received from fellow gay porn star Brandon Wilde (Wilde’s messages appear to be urging Faulk to get sober), as well as his troubles with an ex-girlfriend:

Given that Faulk has now been in jail for two weeks, let’s hope he can remain sober and receive professional treatment when he’s eventually released.

    I was wondering why there were no crazy ranting videos posted on his Twitter lately. Thank you for satisfying my curiosity!

  • Unfortunately we all know how this will end

    So very sad to see

      Alas, being cute, and being smart…Two different things.

    Someone needs to get him in a rehab facility and fast a decent one. Being a drug addict is not the same as a felon. It’s why our jail and prison systems are over crowded. A few other types of people who have been incarcerated are in there with out proper help. But he is not going to right himself if he goes to jail or prison.

    • No_No_No_Yes

      I have to disagree. Jail may be the only thing to save him at this point. There comes a time when the addict is so snow blind by the drugs they can’t even grasp how bad they have really fallen. Rehabs have no teeth, they are a revolving door for addicts who think “they partied a lil too hard”, and they need a reset. One or two days in, they are case building to walk out, day 4 or 5 – gone when you go to visit. Jail won’t be a party for him, but it will get him thoroughly sober. It will give those that care about him time to talk actual sense to him during visits. He will at least be in the frame of mind he can actually seek help once he is released. Right now? Zero chance that will happen.

        Yikes. Jail has soooo many drugs. In many states in the US the most likely place someone is to try hard drugs is in jail. In some counties, people actually go to jail explicitly for easy access to drugs.

        Prison is not going to help him get clean. It never does.

        • Even in jail you gotta pay for drugs and Tom doesn’t seem to have much $$$ and I doubt anyone has put money on the books for him so he can get stuff from the commissary to trade for drugs. So doubt he will be able to score.

        Well, if Substance Abuse Felony Punishment Facility he can manage to get redirected into the Substance Abuse Felony Punishment Facility, which Texas specifically intended to intervene with drug offenders (rehab beds in prison, yeah, but rehab beds), there’s a chance. Inmates in the program work jobs while in prison, attend counseling, and upon release are directly monitored by the judges in a special “re-entry” court created specifically for the program. The prison segment was actually funded back in 1991 (Ann Richards, Gof love her), and the re-entry court support program has been in the pilot phase for a few years now (though I’m not clear on how it’s funded, which could be problematic).

        Republicans here don’t seem to have done much to try and tear the program apart (that I’m aware of), and being the blue dot in the red sea means the second phase is pretty unique in the state, but at least, being in Austin, there are people in the system who care enough to try to avoid having to re-incarcerate felons with drug problems.

    I doubt a normal rehab will work for him. Something feels off. Very off. Did he mention in any way why he and his girlfriend broke up or who broke the relationship?
    I wish for his speed recovery.

    • c_find

      You’re right. He needs therapy because it seems he is dealing with some deep emotional issues, but he has to start rehab to clear his mind at least. I hope he can overcome those demons.

      His twitter in October was rather incoherent, he rambled about her and if his account was even vaguely accurate (He said she was cheating, and hooking on the side) it sounds like she was working an exit strategy. Addicts don’t relate to the damage they cause to relationships, they are always sorry and contrite – until they aren’t. He was so bad he couldn’t remember her last name, or said he never knew it in one sentence, then talked about how her family disliked him in another.. it was bizarre and disturbing, I have seen this show before.

  • SaintMike

    this isn’t going to end well

  • Todd

    If he assaulted a female family member, let him stay in jail awhile

  • Joel

    Kids, don’t do drugs. I hope he gets help because his behaviour is inexcusable.

  • Shawn

    The story of Tom is so tragic because it wasn’t that long ago that he had an interview on this site and he seemed so happy and content with his life, he had goals and he had hobbies and everything seemed to be going his way.

    Look at that mug shot. His skin is fucking GRAY. I’m a proponent of legalization but meth needs to fucking die.

    I hope he has someone in his life who can give him support and hopefully get him in to treatment. Bouncing from prison to prison for the next few years will only make it worse. Gay porn has too many stories of retired actors departing life far too early due to drugs.

      The last interwiew, I remember, was about his experiences with the duck face.
      The shot with Boomer was never realized.
      Happy future I imagine differently.

  • Jacob Carey

    What a waste… he looks awful. I hope he gets the help he needs before it’s too late.

  • No_No_No_Yes

    As bad as it sounds this may be the thing that actually saves his life. There are no legal remedies for families to have Tom committed to a rehab. They are all voluntary, and if that person doesn’t want or isn’t able to see that they need help – good luck. So, sadly the best thing that could happen here is Tom getting a year or two. When people are addicted at that level – anything less is just not enough. Even then, he will need some real support when he gets out.

    Tom seems like a really sweet guy, I know this is going to suck for him and for this family member. I think I read somewhere his Dad lives in Texas, hopefully he has the chops to push this all the way. If not, chances are good this will not end well.

    • e jerry powell

      As I said above, there are at least a few people in the system here in Central Texas who might actually give a damn about the kid.

  • I wonder if he is getting high as a way of not dealing with issues he may be having about his sexuality?

  • Jeff Bosco

    Good god, he’s trash… hes always been trash… why is anyone even remotely surprised by this?

  • Tom started very young in porn in 2011 at supposedly age 18 on College Dudes. It is a tough business and he has struggled with weight gain over the years, possibly due to injuries preventing him from working out. He played the part of the chilled out stoner / surfer dude so convincingly, it made him that much more attractive when he sucked cock and bottomed. Meth is a scourge that destroys so many lives. I look at his gaunt face and am reminded of Marcel Rodriguez who traveled down this same path before him. It is worth mentioning that it takes a great amount of strength and dedication to survive and and have a long career in this business. So props to performers like Colby Keller, Diego Sans, Roman Todd, Connor Maguire, Ashton McKay, CF Connor, and many others who also started young and have gotten hotter over the years.

    If you follow his twitter he says his Dad set him up so I’d bet that relative was him. He’s actually now facing some serious prison time. Maybe a cum back on family dik? So glad I never went down that stimulant black hole. Poor guy..

  • Seth Sexton

    Thousands of people in the US are sitting in prison for various charges, he’s different because he fucks on camera? Give the guy a break. Life happens.
