Gerard Depardieu Arrested For DUI

According to reports, French actor Gerard Depardieu has been arrested for driving his scooter while under the influence of alcohol.

Depardieu was held for questioning by cops on Thursday afternoon after a minor accident in Paris, which saw Gerard fall off his scooter and scrape his elbow. No one else was hurt in the accident.

According to Agence France-Presse, when cops arrived on the scene, Depardieu, 63, failed a sobriety test blowing a blood alcohol level of 1.8 grams per litre, nearly three times the French limit for driving of 0.5.

He was then brought to a police station to face misdemeanor charges "after a period of sobering up," a source revealed to the French news agency.

It has to be noted that this is isn't the first time Depardieu has found himself in hot water with the authorities on the road.

Back in August, a motorist filed a complaint against Depardieu accusing him of assault and battery following an alleged altercation in Paris.

What do you think? Does Depardieu have a drinking problem?
