‘Divergent’ star ‘ar­rested’

New York Post - - NEWS -

MILES Teller was ar­rested in San Diego on Sun­day for al­legedly be­ing drunk in pub­lic, po­lice told Page Six. Teller, how­ever, de­nied on Mon­day that he was ar­rested, tweet­ing that he was just “de­tained.” Lo­cal law en­force­ment said Teller, 30, was par­ty­ing with a group of male pals when an of­fi­cer on the street no­ticed he was show­ing signs of be­ing un­der the in­flu­ence of al­co­hol, The Post’s Francesca Bac­ardi re­ports. The of­fi­cer ap­proached the “Divergent” star, who cops say ap­peared to have blood­shot eyes, was sway­ing side to side and slur­ring his words. While be­ing eval­u­ated, the ac­tor nearly fell, ac­cord­ing to po­lice. The of­fi­cer on the scene de­ter­mined Teller couldn’t care for him­self and took him to a detox cen­ter so he could “sleep it off ” for four hours. But po­lice also say Teller was un­co­op­er­a­tive with the cen­ter’s staff, so he was re­jected from their care. Teller then was trans­ported to San Diego Cen­tral Jail and later re­leased. Teller tweeted: “Went down to SD to see my buddy be­fore he de­ployed. I wasn’t ar­rested I was de­tained bc there was no ev­i­dence to charge me with a crime.”
