Jason London is harkening back to his most popular movie role, but in the worst way possible — cops say he was so drunk he swerved off a road and crashed his car … multiple times.
According to a police report, obtained by TMZ, the “Dazed and Confused” star was arrested late Tuesday around 11:30 PM in Ocean Springs, Mississippi when cops found him behind the wheel of a 2010 Nissan Maxima that was on fire and stuck in a ditch.
Cops say London’s passenger was standing near the car — which had sustained heavy damage on the passenger side — and London claimed someone had sideswiped them and run them off the road.
According to cops, London — who played football star Randall “Pink” Floyd in the 1993 Matthew McConaughey film — reeked of booze, could barely keep his balance and had slurred speech.
Cops investigated the scene and believe he swerved off the road, mowed down a sign, got back on the road, and then hit a concrete object before driving into a ditch.
London was booked for public intoxication and leaving the scene of an accident. When they got him to jail in Jackson County, cops say he was so drunk and out of it they couldn’t fingerprint him.
As for why they didn’t hit him with a DUI — an Ocean Springs PD spokesperson tells us the officer used his discretion, and instead decided to arrest him on the other charges. We’re guessing the thought process was he hadn’t observed London driving.
