The Walking Dead's 70-year-old Scott Wilson — who portrays the good farmer Hershel, a former alcoholic — was arrested for drunk driving in Georgia, where the series had been filming. Notable details from the report include that "Wilson said he’d been drinking scotch and wine at a restaurant" and "Wilson was swaying and asked to do yoga poses instead of a field sobriety test." Apparently yoga isn't much help when facing a DUI, or zombies for that matter.
