Michael Madsen Arrested for DUI, Hospitalized
You may not believe this, but Michael Madsen ran afoul of the law last night.
The troubled actor, who was booked in March for allegedly getting into an altercation with his son, was arrested this time on on suspicion of drunken driving after motorists saw his vehicle swerving on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu and called 911.
In a field sobriety test, the actor came back with a blood alcohol level of .21, more than twice the legal limit of .08, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore.
In an unusual twist, Madsen complained of an undisclosed medical problem during his booking and spent the night at the hospital after deputies cited him for drunk driving and released him.
On the professional front, the star plays a role on the Hawaii Five-0 Season 3 premiere. It airs September 24.
