Michael Madsen has been charged with DUI. The American actor, poet and photographer,known for such roles as in Sin City and Celebrity Big Brother 9 contestant had been arrested back in September. Now for this he has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence (DUI) and he will have to appear in court later this month.
The star was driving erratically in Malibu in September and was subsequently blowing a .20 on a breathalyser test – more than twice the legal limit, then last Wednesday, December 12 2012 the Los Angeles City Attorney filed two misdemeanor counts against him, one for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and another for driving with a BAC of .08 or higher, this is according to the web-site TMZ.
Now his case is set to head to court sometime later this month, however an attorney for Madsen previously declared the breathalyser test ”flawed” – said: ”We intend to vigorously defend the charges.
” The fifty five year,may be convicted and if so could get a two year jail term, he has never had any other DUI convictions against him, so it looks as if he may not serve anytime at all.
He is married to Deanna and they share three sons together.
