We are very disappointed to hear this.
According to new reports, Ryan Gosling, who recently starred as a stunt driver/getaway man in Drive, was actually arrested for driving under the influence back in 2005!
The actor was pulled over and arrested on May 17th, 2005 by authorities, and later pled "no contest" to a misdemeanor charge of "exhibiting speed," despite being initially charged with "driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs" and "driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or greater," and was sentenced to two years probation and ordered to pay $849 in fines!
Apparently, “exhibiting speed” is a pretty commonplace negotiation tactic for defense attorneys in lieu of a DUI charge.
Wow - if this is true, then this is NOT very seksi…or COOL! At all!
Just stoopid! And dangerous!
Hopefully this was a big wake up call for him, and he knows much better than to do something like this now!
