TV star Weatherly apprehended in Hollywood for drunk driving

Television and film actor Michael Weatherly is facing charges after he was recently arrested in Hollywood for driving a vehicle while intoxicated. Reports said two counts of driving under the influence were filed against the 47-year-old NCIS actor. Weatherly was reportedly stopped by an officer in Hollywood after he was witnessed driving his vehicle at a high rate of speed.

The actor was later taken into custody, where he stayed for fifteen hours, after officers found his blood alcohol content exceeded the legal limit. Weatherly may face imprisonment for a maximum of six months upon conviction of the charges. Reports noted that this is the actor’s first offense, and that he is unlikely to see jail time as a result.
