Jonathan Rhys Meyers has reportedly been arrested for drunk driving after crashing his car.
The Bend It Like Beckham actor is thought to have crashed in Malibu, Los Angeles, on Sunday.
When the police were called, he failed a field sobriety test, according to TMZ, which led to his arrest for misdemeanour DUI.
The site reports that he is currently in custody.
The 43-year-old actor has previously been open about his struggles with addiction, and has been working to stay sober.
In 2018, he apologised after being detained by police following a flight which saw him break his sobriety.
On the flight, he pulled out an e-cigarette during an argument with his wife, Mara Lane, despite them being banned.
He said at the time: ‘My wife and I had been travelling since 3 o’clock in the morning from Peru back to Los Angeles. And they gave away our tickets – it was just a problem with the airline.’
He added to Larry King: ‘We had our baby, who was teething at the time, and it was all kind of frustrating. So we eventually got on the flight and my wife went to sleep and I very stupidly decided to order a drink.
‘When my wife found that I’d ordered a drink, she got very, very angry with me because I shouldn’t drink. It doesn’t suit me and I had been sober for a long time.’
Jonathan said the police had been ‘incredibly kind and understanding’, adding that he had ‘learned his lesson.’
The actor also told the Mail On Sunday’s Event magazine that he’d ‘let himself down’ by relapsing.
‘I actually don’t like the taste of alcohol,’ he said.
He went on to add: ‘I would be known as somebody who relapses with problem drinking, not alcoholism. I don’t suffer from alcoholism – I suffer from an allergy to alcohol every time I drink it. But once I stop, I never think about it again.’
Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Jonathan Rhys Meyers and the LAPD for comment.
