Shreveport Police Department
Don't mess with George W. Bush...or the friends of the actor who's playing the president in a movie.
W. costars Josh Brolin and Jeffrey Wright were arrested outside a Louisiana bar early this morning after trying to exercise too much executive authority when the cops tried to arrest their drunk-and-disorderly pal, according to the Shreveport Police.
The police were called to Stray Cats bar at around 2 a.m. to break up a disturbance, but things apparently got so rowdy that the popos had to call for backup.
Brolin and Wright were busted after allegedly trying to intervene when one of the crew members they were with, 29-year-old Eric Felland, a lighting technician, was collared for public intoxication and resisting arrest, per authorities.
The other members of the W. brigade were taken into custody and charged with interfering with police, a misdemeanor. Brolin was booked into the city jail and released after posting a $334 cash bond.
The 40-year-old SAG Award winner is portraying the title initial in Oliver Stone's already controversial biopic, while Wright, 42, plays General Colin Powell.
So, who do you think picked up Brolin's 3 a.m. phone call?
