Looks like Nick Bollea no longer has a monopoly on random D-list celebs being involved in automobile incidents in late August. Sorry, Nick!
No, random actor Austin Nichols was arrested for a DUI early Friday morning in Jackson, Michigan. The 27-year-old John from Cincinnati star was driving Nicole Richie style – going the wrong way down a one-way street – when the police pulled him over at 2:40 a.m.
An officer took Austin Nichols into custody, where he registered a 0.10 percent blood-alcohol content, .02 above the legal limit in Michigan.
Nichols, a pal of Jake Gyllenhaal, was released from the Jackson County Jail at 8:40 a.m. He will appear in court at a later date, where he will face up to 93 days in jail.
Austin Nichols has been living at nearby Clark Lake for the summer. HBO recently announced that his show, John from Cincinnati, would not return for a second season.
We didn’t know there was a first season, come to think of it. Maybe they can get him a guest spot on Entourage after he finishes serving his time?
