Actor Sam Shepard Arrested for Drunk Driving

At least Sam Shepard never made it out of the parking lot. The actor and Pulitzer-winning playwright was arrested for aggravated DUI outside a restaurant in Santa Fe, N.M., on Monday night after police were called in to check on a patron who seemed too impaired to be driving off on his own. Lt. Andrea Dobyns of the Santa Fe Police Department confirms to E! News that a security guard from La Choza restaurant called the cops after observing Shepard trying to drive off in his blue Tacoma pickup truck with the emergency break still on. As of noon Tuesday the Oscar-nominated actor was still in jail and police said he needed to be arraigned before he is released.
