Miles Teller won’t face charges in drunk in public arrest

Miles Teller won’t be facing any charges for being drunk in public last June.

The actor, 30, was arrested by cops in San Diego for public intoxication, a misdemeanor offense, in the early hours of Sunday June 18.

On Thursday, TMZ reported that law enforcement have decided not to send a file to the City Attorney and have dropped the matter.

At the time of the incident, TMZ claimed the Hollywood star had had trouble standing in one spot and almost fell into traffic at one point, so police handcuffed him. 

The cops asked if he wanted to enter a detox program to sleep it off and he said no, but then they took him to a detox center to sleep off the drink, he did not cooperate and was kicked out. 

There was no where else for him to go but the police station, a source told the website. 

Following his release, the Divergent and Whiplash star took to social media to deny he’d been arrested and said there was no evidence to charge him with a crime.
