Michael Madsen, the actor most famous for his roles in Quentin Tarantino movies like Reservoir Dogs and Kill Bill, was arrested for driving under the influence on Wednesday. Michael insists the incident was all just one big misunderstanding!
According to the breathalyzer, however, he was totally WASTED!
The 54-year-old blew a .21 after cops pulled him over on the PCH in Malibu where he was reportedly driving erratically in a flame-red Pontiac GTO. In case you're completely ignorant to drunk driving laws, his BAC was over TWICE the legal limit of .08!
While we hear he had trouble completing the field sobriety test before he was told to start blowing, Mr. Madsen wants to assure his fans that he passed with flying colors. As far as that massive amount of alcohol that police technology detected? His lawyer has said his client "believes that the breathalyzer test is flawed."
Keep in mind, he was probably still bombed off his ass when telling his lawyer to release that statement.
In fact, he was so drunk at the time that he actually had to go to stay in the hospital overnight instead of a jail cell! With that much alcohol in his system, we'd have no trouble believing he had alcohol poisoning, but he was apparently released to doctors for an unknown medical problem.
Either way, he's still got a $15,000 bail to pay!
