Friday Night Lights star Garrett Hedlund ‘arrested for public intoxication'
25th January 2022

Garrett Hedlund has allegedly been arrested for ‘public intoxication’ just a day after his split from girlfriend Emma Roberts was publicly confirmed.

According to TMZ, Hedlund was arrested in Tennessee on Saturday night for public intoxication.

The outlet posted an apparent mugshot of the actor, who is thought to still be in custody.

Bond has been set at $2,100 (£1,550) for the misdemeanour arrest.

It has since been reported by People that the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office confirmed Hedlund was ‘no longer here’.

It’s the latest in a long line of legal issues for the star, who is currently being sued for negligence after allegedly drunk driving back in January 2020.

He crashed into a Nissan driven by a woman who was travelling with her three children.

According to the lawsuit filed on Friday, Hedlund allegedly ‘passed out behind the wheel of his vehicle and ran a solid red-light at a high rate of speed.’

It’s claimed the driver and passengers suffered ’severe and permanent injuries’ as a result of the collision.

Hedlund’s blood level tested at .36%, four times the legal limit of .08, according to court documents obtained by People.

The actor reportedly refused a DUI test at the scene of the accident, but when tested at the station two hours later, his blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

Court records from the time show he pled no contest to the DUI charge and was sentenced to three years probation. 

It comes just a day after it was publicly confirmed Hedlund and Roberts had split.

The Scream Queen actor, 30, and her Troy star boyfriend, 37, first began dating in 2019 and welcomed son Rhodes in December 2020.

The pair appear to have now gone their separate ways, with multiple sources telling People that they split a few weeks ago after some ‘rocky’ months in their relationship.

A source said: ‘It’s sad, and they are trying their best to co-parent. It’s been hard.’

They recently celebrated their son’s first birthday, with an adorable rodeo-themed party. 

A source previously told People Garrett had ‘stepped it up’ since Rhodes was born, and that ‘having a newborn in the pandemic has been a lot harder than either of them expected’.

Roberts announced her son’s birth back in January 2021, in a cute Instagram post captioned: ‘‘Thank you 2020 for getting one thing right ☀️ Our bright light Rhodes Robert Hedlund.’

The couple began dating shortly after Emma split from American Horror Story co-star Evan Peters, following a five-year engagement.
