David Koechner Busted for DUI in Ohio, His Second Arrest in Six Months

The 59-year-old actor and comedian, who is best known for starring in 'Anchorman' film series and 'The Office', is taken into custody when he is on a standup tour.

AceShowbiz - David Koechner had a run-in with the law yet again. The "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" actor, who is currently touring the country on a standup tour, was arrested for driving under influence in Ohio.

According to online records obtained by TMZ, the 59-year-old was pulled over by police in Southern Ohio before 2:00 A.M. local time on June 4. He was then taken into custody and charged with operating a vehicle under the influence.

Despite his arrest, David managed to host "The Office" trivia night later that day in Ironton. He is set to make a court appearance in July.

This marks the comedian's second arrest in six months. On December 31, 2021, he was arrested for a suspected DUI and hit-and-run in Simi Valley, California. He was taken into custody for suspicion of driving under the influence at 3 P.M. and booked at Ventura County Jail at 5:15 P.M. local time.

Law enforcement sources reported at that time that the authorities received a call for an erratic driver. Upon their arrival, David was quickly given a field sobriety test, which he failed. It was also said that his vehicle was towed shortly after. The actor stayed there until the next morning as he was released at 5:49 A.M.

David's legal trouble prompted his estranged wife Leigh Morgan Koechner to feel worried about their children's safety. Thus, she filed docs on January 7 in L.A., asking for his visitation with their kids to be suspended. She also asked for "safeguards be put in place to ensure (David's) sobriety."

David and Leigh, who tied the knot in 1998, called it quits last year after nearly 22 years of marriage. The exes share five children together, Charlie, Margot, Sargent, Audrey as well as Eve.
