“E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial” actor Henry Thomas was arrested for DUI in Oregon on Monday.
The Tualatin Police Department confirmed the news to Entertainment Tonight. Another motorist had called 911 around 8:30 p.m. to report someone stopped in the middle of a residential intersection.
Police had received a call about a car that wasn’t moving.
Thomas, 48, who played Elliott in the much-loved 1982 fantasy flick, was said to have been found passed out behind the wheel, with cops having to wake him up.
He was then taken to Washington County Jail where he was booked for a misdemeanour for driving under the influence of intoxicants.
The Washington County Jail says Thomas was released Tuesday morning on his own recognizance and did not have to post bail due to limited space at the facility.
Thomas’ first court date is scheduled for Nov. 1.
