Authorities said that Koechner got pulled over around 3:00 p.m. PT and booked in Ventura County Jail at 5:00 p.m. PT on Friday, which is a pretty early end to the actor’s New Year’s Eve plans.

Cops were alerted to his erratic driving before pulling him over, and it is reported that Koechner may have collided with a street sign as well. Koechner was arrested after performing poorly on a field sobriety test and was released at 5:00 a.m. PT on New Year’s Day.

In a statement released on Jan 3, police provided more details on the arrest. They said that Koechner was driving on two blown tires before he was pulled over. He also allegedly blew a .13% BAC in the field, which would have been higher than California’s legal max of .08% BAC.

Koechner will be heading to court in March to answer for the DUI and hit-and-run arrest.
