Gerard Depardieu Detained for Driving Scooter While Drunk
Gerard Depardieu was arrested by police in Paris for driving scooter while intoxicated on Thursday, November 29. According to Agence France-Presse, the French actor was brought to police station to have a test on his blood alcohol level.
The test result showed the alcohol level of 1.8 grams per litre in his blood, while the maximum limit allowed in France is 0.5. According to a source, the "Asterix & Obelix: On Her Majesty's Service" actor could face misdemeanor charges "after a period of sobering up".

At the time, he was also allegedly intoxicated.
August this year, a motorist in Paris filed a complaint of assault and battery after the "102 Dalmatians" actor collided with a motorist and hit him in the face. At the time, he also rode a scooter.
The veteran actor has starred in some famous Hollywood movies such as "Green Card" and "Babylon A.D.". He will next be seen in "Life of Pi". His best achievement in Hollywood was when he nabbed the Best Actor title at 1991 Golden Globe Awards for his role in "Green Card".
