A wild night out in San Diego reportedly didn’t end well for Miles Teller. The actor was allegedly arrested for being drunk in public after he failed to cooperate with cops, according to a new report. He spent four hours in jail.
Miles Teller, 30, was out partying with friends in San Diego on the evening of June 17, but things reportedly took a turn from a fun to possibly dangerous night out in the early hours of Sunday morning. Police nearby allegedly noticed Miles having trouble standing up after a night of drinking, but when they tried to question him, he did not cooperate, according to TMZ. Eventually, the cops were reportedly forced to put the 30-year-old in handcuffs when he nearly fell over into a traffic lane. The site reports that police offered to take Miles to a nearby detox center, which allows drunk people to ‘sleep it off’ for four hours, but he refused.
When officials took him to the detox center anyway, he allegedly still wasn’t cooperative, and the volunteer staffers would not allow him to stay. Finally, police had to arrested him for the misdemeanor of being drunk in public, TMZ‘s law enforcement sources claim. He spent four hours in jail before he was released without bail. His girlfriend, Keleigh Sperry, posted a photo from her sister’s bachelorette party on June 18 like any other day, so hopefully this has all already blown over. HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Miles’ rep for comment.
The San Diego Police Department confirmed to HollywoodLife.com: “Miles teller was detained at 12:26 am Sunday morning June 18 on the 4300 block of Mission Blvd. with a group of males. The officer noticed he was under the influence and lost his balance and almost fell into oncoming traffic. Seeing that Miles was incapable of standing on his own, police felt no need to put him through field sobriety or blood testing. Miles was transferred to a detox facility where he could have slept it off and left on his own accord, however he refused and became extremely uncooperative and was turned away from the center.”
UPDATE: Miles took to Twitter later in the day to give his side of the story. “Went down to SD to see my buddy before he deployed. I wasn’t arrested I was detained bc there was no evidence to charge me with a crime.”
This year, Miles will star in the films Granite Mountain and Thank You For Your Service, while his movie, The Ark and the Aardvark, is due out in 2018.
