Famous Hollywood actor was arrested for driving under the influence at age 18. No one expected this from him!
He is the actor who plays Carl Gallagher on the Showtime series “Shameless.” 18-year-old Ethan Cutkosky was arrested just last week on suspicion of misdemeanor driving under the influence.
The Associated Press released the news after Burbank police Sgt. John Pfrommer shared that the 18-year-old actor was pulled over last Wednesday night after police saw him “straddling lanes.”
According to Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department records, he was released early Thursday morning on $5,000 bail. Meanwhile, his “blood alcohol” tests were still pending when he was released from jail.
This was a shock to many of his fans who have watched him on “Shameless” for all eight seasons that it has aired. He started with the show’s first pilot episode at just 10-years-old, little did we know he would end up drinking and driving.
Law enforcements spoke with TMZ about the arrest stating that Ethan was driving his orange BMW. Furthermore, it was around 10:30 PM when began to straddle the traffic lanes.
That’s when the cops pulled him over. Reports state that Ethan did very poorly on field sobriety tests. This prompted authorities to arrest him on the spot. As of now, no one is sure if the DUI was alcohol or drug related.
Shameless’ next season recording was already complete at the time of his arrest, so it shouldn’t interfere. The Showtime and Shameless producer Warner Bros has not been willing to release a comment on the arrest as of now.
This is a heartbreaking and terrifying time for Ethan’s friends and family. Furthermore, even his fans are worried about him. He’s too young to be arrested for DUI’s!
Praying for Ethan during this hard time. I hope that this doesn’t turn into a problem for him!!
He’s TOO young for this!!!
