Will Patton Arrested

Armageddon actor Will Patton was arrested for DUI, earlier this week. On Tuesday night, several 911 calls were made after Will Patton was seen driving his vehicle in an erratic manner in Isle of Palms in Charleston County, South Carolina.

Witnesses told police that The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond and The Last Ride star was seen veering over the center line of the main road through the beach community northeast of Charleston. When South Carolina authorities asked Mr Will Patton if he was drinking prior to getting behind the wheel, he gave the following strange answer:

“Not too much, a couple bottles … er … couple of glasses of wine.”

After Patton failed a field sobriety test, the cops asked him to take a Datamaster blood alcohol test and he refused. The 60-year-old, who is currently starring in the TNT series Falling Skies, was arrested and charged with first offense driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content of less than 0.10.

The legal limit for driving in the state of South Carolina is 0.08. According to the police report, Patton, a native of Charleston, spent the night in jail and was released on Wednesday on a $997 personal recognizance bond. He is set to appear in court in March.

While the headline “Will Patton arrested for DUI” is trending on social media, Mr Patton will forever be Coach Bill Yoast, from the 2000 movie Remember the Titans – a sports drama produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, which also starred Denzel Washington.

Despite having a brilliant career where he has acted in more than 150 movies, Patton has revealed that he is not a fan of Hollywood and prefers to stay quiet in Charlotte. He recently said:

“Well, I don’t live in California… New York’s where I made my stamp, so it’s a little easier to avoid that kind of thing. And, well, you don’t see that many interviews with me and I think I’m not that great at smoke and mirrors… If I’m going to talk to someone, I would like to be open and you can’t do that if you just are all over the place in that [Hollywood] way.”
