'Supernatural' Star Jared Padalecki Reportedly Arrested For Assault And Public Intoxication
Jared Padalecki was reportedly arrested after an altercation outside an Austin bar early Sunday morning.
In footage obtained by TMZ, Padalecki can be seen fighting with another man on the street, before police arrive to break things up.
Padalecki has reportedly been booked for two counts of assault and one of public intoxication after also allegedly hitting a bartender in the face. Footage shot from within the establishment in Austin, Texas -- Stereotype -- also shows the 'Supernatural' star being put into the back of a police vehicle.
Eyewitnesses said after Padalecki struck the man he was taken outside by a friend to calm down, which eventuated in the duel headlock seen in the video below.
Most famous for starring alongside Jensen Ackles across the 15 seasons 'Supernatural' as Sam Winchester, Padalecki was also recently announced as the headliner for a 'Walker, Texas Ranger' reboot.
The actor said the reboot was the perfect opportunity for him to continue working while being able to remain close to his Austin home.
"I know that I need to be in Austin next year and then something came up with a few people that I would kill to work with," he said of the project, "It makes sense to shoot it in Austin, if again, this all goes."
TMZ claim Padalecki's bond was set at USD$15,000 -- $5k per charge -- with no official statement from his representation at this time.
