Fortunately for Lopez, no charges were filed against him. He was allowed to sober up in the casino’s drunk tank before getting released. He’ll be returning to the stage at the casino on Saturday for his second show of the weekend.
Lopez handled the situation with humor, admitting that he didn’t pick the best place to catch some z’s.
"Tied one on last night," Lopez said in a statement. "Not feeling great this morning. I was trying to sleep it off, unfortunately, it was on the casino floor."
