Jared Padalecki, one of the leading actors of the popular series Supernatural, was arrested yesterday in Texas after hitting two people in a bar.
Padalecki stars as one of the Winchester brothers in the CW series who fight otherworldly forces and his arrest comes as a surprise as he has a somewhat calm demeanor.
According to TMZ, the actor struck a bartender in the face outside the lounge and a friend took him outside to try to get him to calm down. The pal ended up in a headlock and the 37-year-old actor was arrested and put in a jail in Austin. He was released later that day after posting bail.
TMZ also reported that Padalecki also got into a row with the manager of the bar and hit him in the face as well.
The movie star is facing two counts of assault and one count of public intoxication but the court date hasn’t been revealed.
Jared Tristan Padalecki is an American actor known for the role of Sam Winchester in Supernatural. He grew up in Texas and rose to fame in the early 2000s after appearing in the television series Gilmore Girls and in the movie House of Wax.
