TMZ says that on Saturday at 9pm, 62-year-old actor Christopher McDonald was arrested in the Lake Arrowhead, CA area. An eyewitness says Christopher drove his silver Porsche off the highway, crashed into a gas meter at a Stater Bros. supermarket, and ended up in an embankment. When police arrived, the witness claims Christopher McDonald informed them he was in Happy Gilmore. Probably a safer bet that, let’s say, Thelma’s shitty husband from Thelma & Louise.
The witness tells TMZ that police weren’t impressed that Christopher McDonald name-dropped Happy Gilmore. Yeah, of course not. After all, Shooter McGavin has been rumored to eat pieces of shit for breakfast. Police took him to a nearby jail, where he slept it off and was released without bail.
Christopher was arrested for DUI in 2013 in North Carolina after blowing almost double the legal limit.
Since Christopher didn’t pay bail, maybe that line about Happy Gilmore did get him out of trouble. It sounds like Christopher McDonald has a system that works. But what if next time he’s too drunk to remember? Well, that’s easy; he should keep a DVD copy of Happy Gilmore tucked into the visor. That way, when he crashes his Porsche, it will fall into his lap and remind him. Maybe he could also tape a little note to it that says, “Hey Shooter, next time use a driver. Get it? Driver? No, but seriously, stop driving drunk, asshole.”
