Older is not always wiser. Despite having more than enough money to pay for a cab many people still continue to drink and drive. Such is the case for Walking Dead star Scott Wilson
The 70-year-old star of the AMC series "Walking Dead," a post-apocalyptic show that pits the rest of the human survivors against a flesh eating mob of zombies, was stopped in Georgia during the “witching hour” at 2 a.m. As reported in global.christianpost.com.
Wilson admitted to police that he had been drinking scotch and wine at a restaurant. He then made an unusual request. Wilson insisted that the officer performing the field sobriety test allow him to perform yoga stances as a way to prove his sobriety, as he did not feel comfortable taking a field sobriety test.
Police received an anonymous call abou an intoxicated driver and saw Wilson’s vehicle clearly speeding. Wilson was driving a black PT Cruiser at about 70 miles per hourand was swerving.
A breathalyzer test at the scene returned a result of 0.143- well above the legal limit of 0.08- and Wilson was subsequently placed under arrest. Tests taken at the Fayette jail produced results of 0.151 and 0.155.
Yoga or not, he was intoxicated and will pay the consequences. A good 8 hour alcohol class and AA meetings might keep the 70-year-old from becoming a repeat offender.
