Who Is Christopher McDonald? 'Happy Gilmore' Actor Arrested On Drunk Driving Charges

Who Is Christopher McDonald? 'Happy Gilmore' Actor Arrested On Drunk Driving Charges

Happy Gilmore star Christopher McDonald has been arrested for drunk driving.

The 62-year-old was apparently driving his silver Porsche in the Lake Arrowhead area Saturday night when he lost control and crashed into a gas meter.

When cops showed up, McDonald made things worse by reportedly telling them that he'd been in Happy Gilmore. Public Information Officer Cindy Bachman confirmed the news to Entertainment Tonight and said that McDonald was booked at the Big Bear Jail on charges of driving while intoxicated.

But this is not the first time the star has had issues with the law because of climbing behind the wheel while drunk. In 2013, he was arrested for DWI in Wilmington, California. He will be released without bail. It appears at this time that no one was hurt in the incident, including McDonald.


The star also claimed that at the time he was arrested he was not driving, but according to the North Carolina law, a citizen can be taken into custody if under the influence, regardless of whether or not the vehicle is in motion.

Reps for McDonald did not immediately respond to Fox News request for comment.

During that arrest, McDonald was pulled over by deputies around 4:30 a.m., and witnesses who were with him at a bar hours before told TMZ that McDonald "could hardily speak" when they met him.
