PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. -- An actor on the television show “The Walking Dead” has been charged with driving drunk in Georgia, where the show is filmed.
Peachtree City police arrested 70-year-old Scott Wilson at 2 a.m. Aug. 18 after someone called 911 to report a Chrysler PT Cruiser driving erratically.
On the AMC drama, Wilson plays a farmer and recovering alcoholic who’s part of a band of survivors after a zombie apocalypse.
The arresting officer wrote in a report that Wilson said he’d been drinking scotch and wine at a restaurant. The officer says Wilson was swaying and asked to do yoga poses instead of a field sobriety test.
It was not immediately clear if Wilson had a lawyer. A message seeking comment from the network was not immediately returned.
