Walking Dead Priest Seth Gilliam Arrested For DUI, Speeding And Marijuana
When asked if he had been drinking, Gilliam admitted to having had three beers and a shot of hard liquor. He later blew a .107 blood alcohol level. After searching his car, police also found a joint that was hidden in the arm rest.
Gilliam reportedly told his arresting officer that he was speeding because the Chevrolet Cruze was a rental car, and he’s used to driving a jeep. Apparently, that’s not a justifiable excuse, because Gilliam was taken taken into custody and thrown in Fayette County Jail. He was later released after posting a $9,818 bond.
The arrest comes only a few days after his co-star Chad L. Coleman, who plays Tyreese on “The Walking Dead,” had a meltdown on a New York City subway. As Gossip Cop reported, Coleman went into a screaming rampage after overhearing a guy and girl try to pinpoint where they knew him from.
Ironically, Gilliam plays an officer in his upcoming movie Police State. Gossip Cop has reached out to a rep for the actor, but has yet to hear back.
