Gus Van Sant Busted for DUI

As an independent filmmaker, Gus Van Sant is known for breaking all the rules, but it seems that in real life he doesn’t always respect the rules either. Last night at 1:48 am he was reportedly arrested for drunk driving in Portland where he currently lives. After an officer noticed him driving without his headlights on, he pulled Van Sant over and found he had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. His breath test showed 0.19 percent, more than twice the Oregon state limit. To his credit, Van Sant doesn’t seem to have responded with anti-semitic slurs. Perhaps he was attempting some sort of research for his next movie, Paranoid Park, about a teenage skateboarder who accidentally kills a security guard.
