Jonathan Rhys Meyers has been arrested for driving under the influence in Malibu.
TMZ is reporting that police were alerted to a “solo, minor car accident” that took place on Sunday at approximately 5 p.m.
When officers arrived on the scene, the star of “The Tudors” demonstrated “signs of being intoxicated,” leading officers to give him a field sobriety test — which he reportedly “bombed.”
The 43-year-old actor then took a breathalyzer test, which was reportedly well beyond the legal limit.
He was arrested for misdemeanour DUI and is reportedly still in police custody.
Meyers has had a long and very public battle with alcohol, which he addressed in an 2018 interview with The Guardian.
Asked to single out his biggest disappointment, he replied, “Relapsing. I usually spend eight, nine, 10 months sober, then I’ll spend a day relapsing and I get disappointed. But it never lasts too long. I get back up and try again.”
Asked about his “most unappealing habit,” he said, “Drinking. I am sober 95 per cent of the time and fall down five per cent of the time.”
As for his most embarrassing moment, Meyers admitted he’s “had lots — being questioned by the police for being drunk is incredibly humiliating and embarrassing.”
