Actor Jeffrey Wright Arrested For DUI
Actor Jeffrey Wright, of the newest James Bond films, was arrested and charged with DWI on April 27, 2013 in New York, New York. The incident happened after Wright was pulled over on Saturday morning around 3 a.m. in Manhattan’s Lower East Side after police observed him driving erratically. The actor was allegedly speeding and may have almost caused an accident as a result of his erratic driving. When officers initially questioned Wright, they detected an odor of alcohol on his breath and conducted a series of field sobriety tests.
Wright failed the sobriety tests and was arrested for DWI. It is unclear whether or not police also gave the actor an alcohol breath test or what his blood alcohol content (BAC) level was at the time of the arrest. This is not the first time Jeffrey Wright has faced legal trouble though. In 2008, Wright and fellow “W” actor Josh Brolin were arrested after trying to stop police from arresting a fellow crew member at a bar in Los Angeles, California. Jeffrey Wright will next appear in “Hunger Games: Catching Fire”, the sequel to the box office hit “Hunger Games”.
