Seth Gilliam, who plays Gabriel on The Walking Dead, was arrested in Peachtree, Georgia last Sunday morning.
Gilliam was driving around the area at 107 MPH in a 55 MPH zone, according to the police. When he was pulled over, he failed an alcohol sobriety test. He had consumed three beers and a shot, which was enough to put his blood-alcohol level at 0.107, concidentally the speed he was driving.
Then the officer smelled the odor of a marijuana joint coming from his car. Well, he wasn’t getting out of THIS one.
Gilliam was arraigned and was charged with speeding, reckless driving, DUI and possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, booked at the station and then released. It is unknown how this will affect the next season, which just entered the preproduction phase in Atlanta last week, but my money would be on “not much,” unless he contests the arrest and winds up in a lengthy court battle.
