'Shameless' Star Arrested On DUI In Burbank

Share

Shameless star Ethan Cutkosky, who plays Carl on the Showtime series, had a real Gallagher moment recently.

Cutkosky was subsequently arrested on suspicion of DUI, drugs.

TMZ reports Cutkosky was pulled over around 10:30 p.m. for straddling traffic lanes in the Los Angeles area. Green said Cutkosky admitted to police he had been smoking cannabis earlier that night. Police drew Ethan's blood for toxicology testing, which is pending. He was asked to do a field sobriety test and reportedly did very poorly in his attempt, which resulted in him getting arrested on the spot.

Cutkosky was booked at Burbank City Jail but was released a short time later, having received a citation and, presumably, paying the $5,000 bail.

The actor is due in court November 29. Season 8 of Shameless just kicked off two nights ago, and its likely the cast had promo runs these past few weeks so this definitely doesn't help.

Cutkosky, who has been working in the entertainment industry since he was 7 years old, has been a cast member of Shameless since the show aired in 2011.

During Season 5, Carl, who is one of the many troubled Gallagher children, found himself in the juvenile penitentiary system for almost a year on drug charges. TMZ reached out to Ethan's representatives who had no comment.
