'The Walking Dead' actor charged with DUI in Ga.

POSTED: August 27, 2012 8:08 p.m.

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. (AP) — An actor on the television show "The Walking Dead" has been charged with driving drunk in Georgia, where the show is filmed.

Peachtree City police arrested 70-year-old Scott Wilson after someone called 911 to report a Chrysler PT Cruiser driving erratically. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the arrest happened Aug. 18 at 2 a.m.

Wilson plays a farmer and recovering alcoholic who's part of a band of survivors after a zombie apocalypse on the AMC drama.

The arresting officer wrote in a report that Wilson said the car was his sister's and he'd been drinking scotch and wine at a restaurant. The officer says he was swaying and asked to do yoga poses instead of a field sobriety test.

The report says tests indicated an alcohol level above the legal limit.

It was not immediately clear whether Wilson had a lawyer. A message seeking comment from the network was not immediately returned.
