Scott Wilson, who, coincidentally, plays the role of drunken farmer Hershel Greene on zombie show “The Walking Dead” was pulled over for speeding and swerving on a Ga. highway in the early morning of August 18th.
When the 70-year-old actor was asked the obligatory, “Sir, have you been drinking tonight?” he admitted to having wine and scotch at the nearby Founders Restaurant & Bar in Senoia, where the AMC series is currently shooting its third season.
Wilson failed the normal walk the line sobriety test, but suggested he try another method. No zombie attacks! Thank goodness.
According to the officer’s report:
After failing field sobriety tests, Wilson complained the roadway was too “slanted” and asked the officer if he could instead perform some “yoga moves.”
Alas, a breathalyzer test proved him past the legal limit, no matter how “rockin'” his eka pada galavasana, even if it was half-assed.
The lesson? Drunken yoga is for sobriety free yipster festivals and classic late night party tricks. (Mind those inversions!) Also, don’t drink and drive, fool.
