'Happy Gilmore' Star Christopher McDonald Arrested for DWI


The actor was arrested on Wednesday for having a blood alcohol level almost double the legal limit.

For having registered a blood alcohol level of 0.15 on a breathalyzer or almost double the legal limit in the area, actor Christopher McDonald was arrested on Wednesday, October 16 in Wilmington, North Carolina. The 58-year-old, who played Shooter McGavin in Adam Sandler's 1996 flick "Happy Gilmore", was in town filming for a new movie entitled "The Squeeze".

McDonald was flagged down by the North Carolina Highway Patrol at 1:45 A.M. on Wilmington's Third Street and was taken into custody when he failed the breath test, reportedly a few hours after he was spotted in a bar in Wrightsville Beach. He was released that same morning at 7:20 A.M. on a $1,000 bail but must appear for a December 11 court date.

One of the male fans that McDonald had been drinking with prior to his arrest told reporters that he shared a drink with the actor at the Lagerheads Tavern, even buying him and his companions a round of drinks. By the time their group left the bar at around 1 A.M., McDonald stayed on to continue drinking despite already having had more than enough alcohol that night.

Apart from "Happy Gilmore", fans also recognize McDonald for his role in the films "Thelma & Louise" and "Requiem for a Dream". "The Squeeze" will be his second golf-themed movie, after playing arch-nemesis to Sandler's character in their golfing comedy flick.
