"Mr. Hall displayed obvious signs of alcohol intoxication and was unable to perform standardized field sobriety tests," a statement from police reads. "Mr. Hall's 2-year-old son was riding in the car with him at the time of the collision and was determined to have been riding in the vehicle unrestrained, as required by law."

Thankfully, there were no injuries reported as a result of the collision. Hall was placed under arrest and booked for child endangerment and driving under the influence of alcohol.

He was held in the Burbank City Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail, but a Burbank public information officer confirms to E! News that Hall posted bail this morning, he is due in court tomorrow. Charges against Hall are pending review by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office.

Hall's son was released to his wife at the scene.
