Actor Miles Teller arrested in San Diego for being drunk in public
Whiplash actor Miles Teller was arrested on Sunday in San Diego for allegedly being drunk in public. According to the report by E! Online, the actor was arrested for being drunk in public over the weekend which is considered against the law. The police started questioning the actor at around 12:30 am on Sunday soon after he spent the night out with a group of friends, according to the report. It is also said that the actor showed the signs of being drunk as he was slurring his speech and was having trouble standing. It is also reported that he fell on the ground when the police tried to keep him under custody.
“At that point, it was determined he was unable to care for his own well-being. [Police] placed him under arrest for being drunk in public,” noted the San Diego Police Department.
The 30-years-old actor soon tweeted about his arrest after he got out. He tweeted, “Went down to SD to see my buddy before he deployed. I wasn’t arrested I was detained bc there was no evidence to charge me with a crime. Don’t believe everything you read, especially from a third party entertainment news source trying to get clicks. Appreciate the concern.”
Additionally, the actor posted another tweet two hours after his first posts. “I blame Shore Club.”
When people are arrested for public drunkenness in San Diego, they have the option to go to ‘Detox’ where they can sleep off their drunkenness for four hours so long as the person follows directions.
