We have learned that this weekend, the actor was arrested for driving under the influence. Christopher McDonald is most known for his roles on Happy Gilmore and more recently Harry’s Law.
McDonald apparently veered off the road in his intoxicated state and crashed right into a gas meter.
But this is not the first time the star has had issues with the law because of climbing behind the wheel while drunk.
Back in 2013, he was also taken into custody after failing a breathalyzer test.
At the time, the man was released on $1,000 bail.
After the incident, McDonald spoke with the press and addressed the scandal, saying that ‘The whole thing was unfortunate.’
The star also claimed that at the time he was arrested he was not driving, but according to the North Carolina law, a citizen can be taken into custody if under the influence, regardless of whether or not the car is in motion.
As you may already be aware, Tiger Woods also pleaded guilty to DUI in court and will now enter a one-year-long program that requires him to abstain from using any drugs or alcohol for that period of time.
Do you think the same sort of punishment should apply to McDonald as well?
