From the Corpus-Christi Caller-Times:
SINTON, Texas — Actor Lou Diamond Phillips, who was arrested in November in Portland on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, must not drink for two years after entering into a plea deal Wednesday.
Best known for his role in “La Bamba,” Phillips appeared at the San Patricio County Courthouse around 2 p.m Wednesday with his father. The 56-year-old actor was given two years of probation after entering a guilty plea, his attorney Mark DiCarlo told the Caller-Times.
Other conditions for the actor include the use of a portable device that monitors alcohol, taking part in a DWI education program, not entering bars or taverns, and reporting in-person for probation in San Patricio County for the first four months.
…Phillips, who plays Henry Standing Bear on A&E’s Western crime drama series “Longmire,” was arrested around 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 3.
An officer was in the midst of a traffic stop in the 600 block of Moore Avenue when Phillips pulled up behind the patrol car to ask for directions to Flour Bluff, Portland Police Chief Mark Cory said previously.
Suspecting Phillips was intoxicated, the officer called another officer to assist. Phillips was given “several” sobriety tests. After failing them, he was arrested and taken to the San Patricio County Jail in Sinton.
Phillips’ blood alcohol concentration was .20, more than double the legal limit in Texas of .08, Cory said.
