Garrett Hedlund is now ARRESTED for public intoxication days after split from Emma Roberts

Garrett Hedlund has been arrested for public intoxication after a night out in Franklin County, Tennessee on Saturday. 

TMZ reports that the actor, 36, is now in custody with bail set at $2,100 for the misdemeanor arrest. 

Hedlund is currently on three years probation over his previous DUI case, meaning his recent arrest for being intoxicated could pose a problem for the star. 

The arrest comes just days after it was revealed that he has now split with girlfriend Emma Roberts, with whom he shares a child, one-year-old son Rhodes.

It’s also days after it was reported that Hedlund is being sued for a car crash that took place on the night of his 2020 DUI arrest.

Hedlund is being accused of crashing into another car – containing a woman and three children – passed out drunk behind the wheel of his Jeep and running a red light.

The family claims that Hedlund – whose blood alcohol on the night in question was twice the legal limit of .08 – attempted to flee the scene without calling an ambulance.

In court documents obtained by PEOPLE, the actor’s conduct is deemed as ‘despicable.’

‘Hedlund’s conduct was despicable in that he knew and was educated in the dangers presented to Plaintiffs and the public when he operated a vehicle while intoxicated,’ the complaint read.

The complaint also described the strong odor of alcohol coming from the The Tron: Legacy actor.

‘There was a very strong odor of hard liquor emitting from Hedlund’s breath, body, and the cab of the Jeep despite the windows being open/broken,’ it read.

The complaint went on to say that the star attempted to get rid of ‘open bottles of alcoholic beverages’ present in the vehicle before the police arrived.

The injured family also claims that he attempted to flee the scene and had to have his car keys removed to ensure that he wouldn’t leave.  

Sad: The arrest came as the actor was expecting his first child with actress Emma Roberts, 30. She went on to give birth to their son Rhodes Robert at the end of 2020

The actor refused a DUI test at the scene of the accident. When he was tested at the station two hours later, his blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

The family is suing Garrett for damages. 

Hedlund was arrested on two DUI offenses in February, 2020. Following the arrest, the actor was arraigned later that month and able to bail out on $100k bond.

The Tron: Legacy actor served a 36-months of probation, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court documents obtained by Page Six.  

Hedlund was subsequently assigned three days of community service for one of the counts. The second charge was dismissed.

Additionally he was required to enroll in a nine-month first-offender alcohol and other drug education and counseling program.

His team says that Hedlund didn’t resist seeking intervention for his substance abuse, according to Page Six. ‘When the incident occurred, Garrett immediately sought treatment which was successful. Today, he is in a solid and great place,’ reps told the outlet.

The arrest came as the actor was expecting his first child with actress Emma Roberts, 30. She went on to give birth to their son Rhodes at the end of 2020.

Yesterday, it was revealed they had split after nearly three-years of dating.

The pair welcomed their first child together, son Rhodes Robert Hedlund, in December 2020, which they happily shared to Instagram weeks after his arrival.

‘It’s sad, and they are trying their best to co-parent. It’s been hard,’ an insider told PEOPLE of their post-breakup dynamic.

DailyMail.com has reached out to representatives for Roberts and Hedlund for comment. 

Last month, Emma and Garrett celebrated their baby son’s first birthday by hosting rodeo-themed party.

‘Loved every second of it. I love you Rhodes,’ gushed Roberts, who shared several adorable shots from the shindig with her Instagram following.

Emma and Garrett first began dating back in March 2019 and, over a year later, would reveal that they were expecting a child. 

Emma gave birth in December 2020 but waited to reveal the birth and the name of their baby until January 2021.
