George Lopez quit drinking after his public intoxication arrest

It’s clear that George Lopez can’t handle his liquor. He had one too many (or a few, who can say?) and was arrested for public intoxication while at the Caesars Windsor in Canada last month. Video was even released of him lying unconscious that night, so it was just an all-around not very good situation.

Thankfully, George seems to have taken the mature adult stance on this one, and says he’s quit drinking since the incident – something he revealed in a new interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“[The police were] very polite. They told me, they said, ‘Sir, this behavior cannot continue and if it does continue we would be honored if you would be mayor of Toronto.”

“You know, I was on my way to my room – I just missed it by 35 floors. And, the casino carpet is so loud. I’m like, how the hell can I sleep on that carpet?”

“Since then I have not had a drop of alcohol. That was a nice going-away party for that guy and then I’m the new George now sitting here in front of you.”

I don’t care for George Lopez much as an entertainer, but it’s certainly worth respecting that he’s taken a step back after this situation rather than going down an insane spiral of alcoholism. I mean, who knows – he could be doing so privately and just saying he quit, but let’s give him the benefit of the doubt here.

  • He is full of shit. Why would someone who got a second lease on life behave that way at all? He gets that kidney from his wife and thanks her by cheating with multiple women. And now I’m supposed to believe he isn’t drinking anymore, just cause he got caught? Liar, liar…

    • I don’t know if I would go so far as to say liar liar but the rest is true. He gets a new kidney have enough respect for that process to stay off the booze. There are many ppl who would love to have gotten the gift you did George.
