Drunk driving (DUI) charges were recently filed against actor Michael Weatherly in Hollywood after a traffic incident, according to reports. The 47-year-old actor was reportedly stopped by authorities in the Hollywood area after he was observed to be operating a vehicle with excessive speed early in November.
Authorities took Weatherly into custody after confirming that he had a blood alcohol content level above the allowable limit. The actor, know for his role as Anthony DiNozzo on the CBS series NCIS, stayed in jail for nearly fifteen hours. Weatherly may face up to six months of imprisonment if convicted of the two DUI charges filed against him, although this is unlikely as this incident marks his first DUI offense.
