Jared Padalecki Responds to Arrest, Elicits Wave of Emotions from Supernatural Fans

by at .

Jared Padalecki has broken his silence.

The veteran actor, forever best known for playing one half of the brother tandem at the center of The CW's Supernatural, was arrested late last month on two counts of assault and one count of public intoxication.

Here is his booking photo:

Never really known as a troublemaker, at least not to the public, Padalecki is accused of getting wasted at a bar in Austin and then of striking both a bartender in the face and the general manager of the establishment in question in the face.

Reports indicate that he also tried to bride the policemen who then showed up to detain him.

Not exactly a great look all around, right?

Not at all, in fact.

About a week after the incident, the Supernatural star has taken to Twitter in order to share a few basic thoughts with fans.

"I want to sincerely thank my family and friends for all of your love and support. So sad to miss the #SPNFamily at #dccon but I hope to see y’all soon," Padalecki wrote.

As you can see below, nothing specific about the arrest or anything.

Supernatural is the longest-running series in CW history.

It has a VERY passionate fan base, which explains why Padalecki's arrest and his message above have been met with a mixture of emotions from all who have closely followed this show and its stare.

"I love you so much," one follower Tweeted in reply, adding:

"Sometimes we mess up, but it's all part of being human. I just hope you know that we're not going anywhere. So much love to you and your family, Jared."

Others, meanwhile, resorted to cute dog memes and GIFs to show their appreciate for Jared.

Padalecki's arrest has not impacted any of the production of Supernatural's final season, however.

As far as we know, it hasn't impacted what's next for the actor, either, which is another role on this same network.

Following the conclusion of his 15-season run as Sam Winchester, Padalecki will take on another series at The CW when the network launches its reboot of Walker, Texas Ranger.

He will anchor the drama as the main character, Cordell Walker.

To date, no one from the network and no one affiliated with Supernatural has said anything about the situation.

Odds are that Padalecki will only be hit with probation or maybe some community service and that will be it.

But hopefully he's at least learned a lot from what allegedly transpired outside that bar last week.
