Christopher McDonald, perhaps best known for playing Shooter McGavin in Happy Gilmore, was arrested for alleged drunk driving. He was pulled over and arrested for DWI this morning (Wednesday, October 16). Here’s more from Us Weekly:
The arrest took place in Wilmington, North Carolina, where he is currently filming the movie The Squeeze.
TMZ first reported the arrest and reported that law enforcement claimed McDonald’s blood alcohol level was .15, which is almost double the legal limit.
This means that he now has something in common with Dina Lohan (also arrested for driving drunk) and to an extent, Reese Witherspoon (though she herself was not charged with DWI as she was not the one driving, she was arrested for disorderly conduct and was drunk. Her arrest took place while she was out of Los Angeles, filming.)
Celebs, get it together. Can’t you hire someone to drive you? And why are you getting so drunk when you’ve been hired to shoot a film? Even if you don’t have to be on set the next day, it’s unprofessional as hell to drive intoxicated during what is essentially a business trip.
