Walking Dead actor charged with DUI, tries unusual tactic with police

Here’s another way not to get out of a DUI arrest:  yoga stances.

According to the Christian Post:

Scott Wilson, 70, 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 by Peachtree City police at 2 a.m. on Aug. 18, according to an incident report.

When officers approached the vehicle, Wilson told police that he had been drinking scotch and wine at a restaurant. Wilson then insisted that the testing officer allow him to perform yoga stances as a way to prove his sobriety, as he did not feel comfortable taking a field sobriety test.

In the incident report officers explained that they were alerted to Wilson’s vehicle after an anonymous caller reported a possible intoxicated driver on one of Georgia’s busiest roadways.

Police stated that they observed Wilson driving a black PT Cruiser at about 70 miles per hour, which was “well above the posted speed limit” and observed the vehicle “swerved back and forth,” according to the incident report.

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, according to the police report.

Question: what is worse for a tv actor:  getting a DUI or being caught driving a PT Cruiser?
