According to a new report from TMZ, Padalecki was arrested in Austin, TX on early Sunday morning, outside of a club called “Stereotype”. The fan-favorite actor reportedly faces two counts of assault and one count of public intoxication.
According to eyewitnesses, Padalecki reportedly “struck a bartender in the face” while inside the venue, as well as potentially hitting the general manager after getting into an argument with him. A friend took him outside in an attempt to calm him down, which ultimately led to Padalecki putting the man in a headlock shortly before authorities arrived. TMZ has several video clips of Padalecki during the ordeal, including one of the aforementioned headlock.
Padalecki’s bond is reportedly set at $15,000, or $5k per each charge. It is currently unclear if he has posted bail and been released.
