Josh Brolin Busted For Public Intoxication


Yikes. It’s gonna be a little awkward seeing Gangster Squad later this month, lol. Josh Brolin, who’ll be starring alongside Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in the highly-anticipated upcoming movie, was busted for public intoxication on New Year’s Day. Sounds like he and Frank Ocean had semi-similar nights, although we had to make a Busted pic for Frank. This really is Brolin’s mug shot. Awkward! Click inside for more!

E! has the report:

Josh Brolin seems to have discovered the precise point where happy New Year officially becomes crappy New Year.

That’s the moment when the cops arrest you for public intoxication, as happened to Brolin on New Year’s Day at 11:30 p.m., Santa Monica police tell E! News. The Gangster Squad actor was popped for the petty infraction on the 1600 block of Ocean Avenue.

“He was intoxicated and unable to care for himself,” said SMPD spokesman Sgt. Richard Lewis. “He was booked and released with no further action pending.”

But not before his unsmiling countenance was immortalized in this booking portrait.

Here’s hoping the rest of 2013 is better for Brolin.

Well, here’s hoping the talented actor just went a lil’ overboard for the new year. It happens! And although Brolin’s been caught up in some trouble before, hopefully it’s just a once-every-four-or-five-years thing.
