According to law enforcement sources who spoke with TMZ, the actor was busted on Sunday at around 2.30 am in Montpelier, Ohio after the officers noticed his pickup truck did not have a front license plate.

He was pulled over and when the officer went up to the driver’s side window, he noticed that Roerig’s speech was slurred and his eyes were bloodshot. He also reeked of booze.

The police conducted sobriety tests during which the movie star told the officer, “This is very hard. I can’t do this when I’m f**king …” and his voice trailed off. The cop asked what he meant and the actor replied, “When I can’t have a beer.


Roerig was arrested for misdemeanor DUI and was taken to the station where he was placed in a holding cell. He ended up peeing in it.

He was eventually released on his own recognizance. His arraignment is set for June 4, 2020.
