Say it ain't so!
Fans of AMC's Walking Dead will be quick to recognize the mugshot (above) as Scott Wilson, the actor who plays the sympathetic farmer that gave Rick Grimes and his followers shelter in season 2 of the hit show.
The 70-year-old — whose character in the show is ironically a recovering alcoholic — was pulled over on the highway around 2 a.m. in Peachtree City, Georgia and arrested for driving under the influence.
Before blowing into a breathalyzer to reveal a BAC of 0.143, the actor acted all sorts of drunk in front of the arresting officer, who described the encounter by saying:
"When he exited (the car), he asked if I knew a cousin of his, and he advised that his name was Miller, but that he didn’t know his first name. He then changed the name to Wilson, which I found odd because he had originally stated Miller."
Since his spine was bothering him "due to his role in a television series," Wilson asked the cop if he could perform yoga moves instead of a traditional sobriety test. Eventually, however, the inebriated driver stated:
"That if I was going to bust him that I should, because he doesn’t care."
It's a good thing the authorities took this guy off the road because it sounds like this senior citizen was
full of wisdom WASTED!
Guess you're never too old to make mistakes, but it's a shame this guy got in the car and risked turning unsuspecting drivers into
walking dead bodies!
