Anna Nicole Smith's ex-boyfriend was arrested last week after witnesses called police in fear he was planning to drive while under the influence, RadarOnline.com can confirm.
According to the Myrtle Beach Police Department, Mark Hatten was found drunk while sleeping behind the wheel of his car on June 15 at around 1 am.
"A third party contacted our law enforcement agency, giving information of a male that was intoxicated outside a parking lot and was fearful that the male was going to be driving home," Captain Joey Crosby told Radar. "The incident is a violation of our city ordinance of public intoxication which in the state of South Carolina does not require an incident report."
