Actor Josh Brolin rang in 2013 at the Santa Monica Police Department following an arrest for public intoxication.
Brolin was arrested at 11:30p.m. on New Year's Day on a Santa Monica sidewalk after being deemed "intoxicated and unable to care for himself," as reported by E! News. SMPD spokesman Sgt. Richard Lewis stated that the 44-year-old was "booked and released with no further action pending."
Brolin was held in custody on a misdemeanor public intoxication charge and was released around 7a.m. Wednesday.
According to NBC News Lewis went on to say, "This was a booking only to hold him until he sobered up. We do not normally file any charges on persons for simple intoxication. No further action is being sought."
Brolin is starring as Sgt. John O'Mara in the upcoming film Gangster Squad that is set to be released January 11. The film is about a Los Angeles Police Department unit that chases notorious mobster Mickey Cohen, played by Sean Penn.
