The Actor Who Portrays Patton on 'NCIS' Really Does Use a Wheelchair

By

This week's episode of NCIS: New Orleans was an emotional one. Fans got a bit of backstory regarding Investigative Computer Specialist Patton Plame, played by the inimitable Daryl "Chill" Mitchell, who's been part of NCIS's cast since the show first aired in 2014. 

We watched as the NCIS team investigated the murder of Patton's former Navy SEAL friend, who was killed in a drive-by shooting while Patton watched. While that was enough of a storyline to keep fans hooked for the episode, it also fleshed out a bit of Patton's backstory. Namely, viewers got to learn more about the life-changing injury that put him in a wheelchair.
