Actor Sam Shepard arrested for drunken driving in Santa Fe

Recommended Posts

SANTA FE, N.M. –  Actor and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Sam Shepard was arrested Monday on suspicion of drunken driving after a Santa Fe restaurant's security complained about a possibly intoxicated driver.

The 71-year-old Shepard told a police officer that he had two tequila drinks and was planning to drive home, Santa Fe police Lt. Andrea Dobyns said Tuesday. "Our officer could smell alcohol on his breath, and he had bloodshot, watery eyes," she said.

Shepard was arrested outside La Choza restaurant in downtown.

The restaurant's security called police at about 7:45 p.m. Monday concerned about an intoxicated driver, Dobyns said. The man was trying to leave in the pickup, but the vehicle's emergency brake was engaged.

Shepherd declined to take a breath test, but he did perform a field sobriety test, which he failed, Dobyns said.
