Michael Weatherly Charged With DUI
Weatherly was busted for the DUI in Hollywood earlier this month around 1 AM, TMZ reported. The TV actor had been stopped for speeding, when officers suspected that he may have been under the influence of alcohol. Upon running tests, the LAPD reportedly found that Weatherly’s BAC was significantly higher than the legal limit.
Weatherly was arrested and charged with two counts of DUI. He spent nearly 15 hours behind bars.
If convicted of the DUI charges, Weatherly faces up to six months in jail and $1,000 in fines. Since this is Weatherly’s first such offense, it is unlikely that he will have to serve time in prison.
Weatherly has played Anthony DiNozzo on CBS’s hit series NCIS since it premiered back in 2003. The actor, who previously starred on Dark Angel, is married to Dr. Bojana Jankovic, with whom he has children Liam, 2, and Olivia, 3. He also has 19-year-old son August from a previous marriage to actress Amelia Henle.
