William H. Macy was caught arriving at the Federal detention center in Los Angeles Tuesday, March 12 where his wife Felicity Huffman is currently being held with others over an alleged college cheating scam, and RadarOnline.com has all the photos of the disheveled actor.

“Thirteen defendants were taken into custody this morning in the Los Angeles area, including defendant Huffman,” Department of Justice spokesperson Thom Mrozek told Radar. “Those 13 defendants will be making their initial court appearances this afternoon beginning sometime after 2:00 p.m.”

It's unclear if Macy was involved in the scandal as he has yet to be charged. When Radar asked about the actor's involvement, if any, Christina Sterling, PIO for the U.S.Attorney’s Office Dist. Of Mass. said: “I cannot comment, however, it is an ongoing investigation.”
