An actor who appears on AMC’s “The Walking Dead” was arrested over the weekend, reports the Atlanta-area station WSB-TV.com. Scott Wilson, a 70-year old actor known for playing Hershel Greene on the series, was arrested early Saturday on suspicion of drunken driving, the story reports.

Wilson was stopped in Peachtree City, Ga., around 2 a.m. Saturday after police received a tip about an erratic driver. The actor admitted to drinking wine and scotch, but then reportedly told the arresting officer his last name was Miller.

"He then changed the name to Wilson, which I found odd because he had originally stated Miller,” the officer said in a report.

Wilson also told the officer that his spine was out of joint because of "his role in a television series," according to the report. Wilson also asked if he could perform yoga poses rather than a walk-and-turn test, the story adds.

The actor’s blood-alcohol level was reportedly put at 0.143, the piece notes.
