UPDATE: Lopez released a statement on Friday (one of the best ever!) of the incident saying, “Tied one on last night. Not feeling great this morning. I was trying to sleep it off, unfortunately, it was on the casino floor.”
Comedian George Lopez was arrested on Thursday night at a casino in Canada, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
The 52-year-old actor and talk show host was at the Caesars casino in Windsor, Ont. where he had a performance that night and was scheduled to have another show Friday night.
The Ontario Provincial Police were notified by hotel security of a problem with Lopez and arrested him on site just after 11 p.m. for public intoxication.
According to one eyewitness, Lopez was passed out drunk on the floor of the casino and had to seek medical treatment.
“George Lopez passed out on the casino floor last night. And he was sent to the hospital! No joke,” Chad Maura wrote on Facebook, accompanied by a photo of what appears to be Lopez.
And there was one eyewitness who claimed Lopez was already intoxicated when he flew into Michigan, before crossing the border for his show.
“My mom just ran into George Lopez at the airport and he was drunk. She’s got the best life,” Twitter user named Gabriella wrote. “OMG HE WAS SINGING LOUDLY TOO.”
No charges were filed and the show will go on, as he’s expected to perform tonight despite his arrest.
