Actor Lauter Narrowly Avoids DUI
Posted on Jan 18, 2010 in Celebrity Justice, DUI/DWI
TMZ reports that Security guards at a posh Golden Globes after-party this weekend saved Ed Lauter a ton of trouble when they steered the drunken actor away from his car and into a cab despite his protests. Witnesses report that the Grey’s Anatomy and NYPD Blue actor slurred heavily as he argued that he was fit to navigate the roads, spotted with weekend DUI checkpoints, before finally giving in and handing over his keys.
Actor Dennis Quaid was similarly spared the Celebrity DUI Treatment in October when a police officer passed by just in time to convince a stumbling and intoxicated Quaid from driving his SUV away from a West Hollywood restaurant.
