Deadpool star T.J. Miller was arrested in the wee hours of Friday morning, reportedly for assaulting an Uber driver.
ABC 7 News Los Angeles states that the LAPD was contacted around 1:00 AM by the driver, who reported that an altercation occurred while he was driving Miller home. Police then went to Miller’s home and charged him with battery. He was released a few hours later, after posting $20,000 bond.
According to the driver, whose name has not been released, the two got into a heated argument over the recent U.S. presidential election, which then turned physical, with Miller striking the driver. Per the report from TMZ:
Law enforcement sources tell us T.J.’s driver picked him up from the GQ Men of the Year party early Friday morning, and during the ride they got into an argument about President-elect Donald Trump. The driver claims T.J. slapped him in the head when they got to his house.
We’re told the driver got pissed and decided to make a citizen’s arrest. He called cops who showed up and took T.J. into custody. We’re told the driver did NOT have any visible injuries, and it’s he said/he said at this point.
The actor picked a very bad time to make an ass of himself. His latest movie, Office Christmas Party, opens today; and he’s also set to host the Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday. No statement has been released, either by Miller or by the Critics’ Choice association. So at the moment, it is unclear whether he will be replaced for the event.
