George Lopez arrested in Canada after passing out drunk
George Lopez, who is starring in the new FX comedy “Saint George,” exhibited less-than-saintly behavior following a performance in a casino in Canada, according to reports.
TMZ reported that the comedian was arrested for public intoxication at Caesars Windsor in Ontario after officers found him passed out on the floor of the casino bar. He had performed at the casino just prior to his arrest.
The report said that no charges were filed against Lopez, who was released and is scheduled to perform Friday night.
“Saint George,” which premieres March 6 on FX, stars Lopez as a successful Mexican American entrepreneur who is trying to deal with aging and dating after a divorce from his “all-American” Anglo wife.
FX executives declined comment, and representatives for the comedian could not be reached.
