Actor Lou Diamond Phillips, 55, was arrested Thursday night in Texas for driving while intoxicated.

As has learned, the Stand and Deliver star pulled up on a traffic stop around 1:30am to ask an officer for directions. According to KIII News, the officer noticed Phillips looked intoxicated and proceeded to give him a series of sobriety test – which he failed. The actor was then made to take a breathalyzer test, which he also failed and which showed he had .20 alcohol content in his blood – twice the legal amount permitted when driving.
