Actor and Emmy-nominated choreographer Glenn Douglas Packard was arrested in Miami, Florida on Wednesday, November 24 on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI). Packard was pulled over by local police while driving through the Miami Beach area on Wednesday morning.

According to the arrest report, officers observed Packard with "red and watery eyes, slurred speech, and unsteady stance". He was arrested after allegedly admitting he "only had three drinks".

Packard's blood alcohol level was below Florida's legal limit of .08, although the results of a urine test are pending. The Miami-Dade's inmate information system states Packard was being held at the Pre-Trial Detention Center on $1,000 bail as WENN went to press.

Packard earned an Emmy nomination for helping to choreograph a 2001 Michael Jackson TV special and has worked with artists including Destiny's Child, Missy Elliott, Pink and Liza Minnelli. He is also well-known for his appearances on U.S. reality show "Hogan Knows Best".

I believe in Glenn. He's always a honest person, an example of life for me. He's always near his friends, family and fans whey they need it. He's a beautiful person and he's innocent. Stop with rumors and gossips about him!

My name is David Edelstein and I am Glenn Packard's attorney. I would like to issue the following statement on behalf of my client: First and foremost, Glenn has not broken any laws or committed any crimes. He continues to view himself as a role model to young people and is deeply troubled by the message his young fans take from hearing of his arrest. The fact is Glenn has never had so much as a brush with the law in his entire life until this unfortunate incident. The result of the breath test the police administered to Glenn after he was arrested, clearly indicates that he was wrongfully arrested for DUI. Unfortunately, under Florida law, the police don't have the power to "un-arrest" someone after they pass the breath test as Glenn did. Also, the urine test is of no concern as Glenn does not do drugs. I fully expect this case to be resolved in Glenn's favor after the urinalysis comes back negative.
