Jonathan Rhys Meyers Arrested for DUI After Car Accident In Malibu
Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was arrested on Sunday with a DUI after getting into a car crash in Malibu, according to a spokeswoman from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.
After police arrived at the scene of the accident, they felt Meyers, 43, seemed intoxicated. They subsequently performed a field sobriety test, which the actor failed. The Tudors star was then arrested for misdemeanor DUI.
The actor’s wife Mara Lane seemed to be referring to it in an Instagram post she made a few days later. She posted videos of their son Wolf playing in the pool with Meyers and captioned it, “I feel since so many of our lowlights seem to find their way on the web, fair to share some happy moments so when Wolf is older, he can search/find/see/remember the happiest.”
Meyers has struggled with alcoholism for many years. In 2017, after having gotten sober, the actor relapsed following his wife’s miscarriage. The next year, Meyers was detained in an American Airlines flight after a “domestic dispute” with his wife.
A representative for Meyers did not respond to requests for comment on this latest incident.
