Ryan Gosling was arrested for a DUI back in 2005, Star magazine is exclusively reporting.
The hunky Canadian was arrested by officers from the central Los Angeles station of the California Highway Patrol on March 17, 2005 according to L.A. County Superior Court.
He later pleaded “no contest” to a misdemeanor change of “exhibiting speed,” even though he was originally charged with “driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs” and “driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or greater.”
“Exhibiting speed” is frequently negotiated as a plea bargain by defense attorneys as an alternative to a more severe DUI charge.
The 30-year-old actor, who is currently starring as a stunt driver in the film, Drive, was sentenced to two years of probation and ordered to pay $849 in fines.
