Josh Brolin Reportedly Arrested for Public Intoxication on New Year’s Day

Josh Brolin spent some of the first hours of 2013 behind bars.

According to TMZ, the 44-year-old actor was arrested for public intoxication just before midnight on Jan. 1 in Santa Monica, Calif.

Brolin was booked into jail at 3AM before paying the $250 bail for his release some four hours later.

TMZ reports that because the star was not given a citation for the arrest, he will not be required to go to court.

This isn’t the first time the True Grit actor has had legal troubles.

His most recent arrest was in 2008, when he and actor Jeffrey Wright and crew members from the George W. Bush film W. were involved in an altercation at a bar in Louisiana.

In 2004, following an argument with his wife Diane Lane, Brolin was arrested in Los Angeles on a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery. Lane later declined to press charges, citing the whole thing as a misunderstanding.

Brolin’s next big screen release will be the crime thriller Gangster Squad, also starring Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn and Emma Stone.
