The star of the new F-X show “Saint George” has gotten into some not-so-saintly trouble.
Police in Canada say comedian George Lopez was arrested on public intoxication charges.
Lopez was in Windsor to perform at a Caesars hotel and casino.
He was arrested Thursday night after Ontario police received a call from casino security.
The comedian was eventually released with no charges.
In response to the arrest, Lopez joked: “Tied one on last night. Not feeling great this morning. I was trying to sleep it off, unfortunately, it was on the casino floor.”
Lopez, 52, had performed at the casino earlier that night. He stars in the upcoming FX series “Saint George.” He also voices a role in the upcoming animated film “Rio 2.”
That’s one way to get some publicity for your new show!
