Walking Dead Actor Arrested for Driving Drunk
Scott Wilson was arrested and charged with drunk driving in Georgia on August 18, 2012, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
At about 2 a.m., a 911 call was made to police from another vehicle reporting that the Chrysler PT Cruiser was driving erratically.
The officer described the arrest:
“When he exited (the car), he asked if I knew a cousin of his, and he advised that his name was Miller, but that he didn’t know his first name. He then changed the name to Wilson, which I found odd because he had originally stated Miller.”
According to the police officer’s report, after being pulled over, the 70-year-old actor told them that he had been drinking wine and scotch at dinner. The officer said Willion asked to do “yoga poses” instead of a sobriety test.
