Maybe Lou Diamond Phillips should have just used Waze instead.
“Longmire” star Phillips was arrested for drunk driving early Friday morning, after pulling up to police and asking for directions, Portland, Texas, police chief Mark Cory told TheWrap on Friday.
According to Cory, at approximately 1:35 a.m. on Friday, an officer was on an unrelated traffic stop when Phillips’ vehicle pulled up to the patrol car to ask for directions, and appeared to be “highly intoxicated.”
Phillips, whose demeanor was “polite and cordial” according to Cory, was arrested, and testing determined that the actor had a blood-alcohol content of .20 — more than twice the legal limit of .08.
The actor has since been released on bond.
According to the Associated Press, Phillips, who was raised in Texas, was scheduled to appear Friday afternoon at a historical event in Corpus Christi, where he attended high school.
TheWrap has reached out to a spokesperson for Phillips for comment.
