On Saturday, the 18 year old actor was driving in Malibu on the Pacific Coast Highway when he was pulled over for speeding. It was around midnight when the Sheriff’s deputies pulled Unger over. They suspected he was under the influence.
Unger blew a .08, which is not tolerated under a California law where drivers under 21 can’t have any alcohol in their system. Unger was arrested and taken to jail, but later released.
It’s possible he could face more trouble. ‘Hollywood Life’ says, “a first time DUI conviction can result up to $1000 in fines, a six-month jail sentence, license suspension and probation. Some offenders are required to complete an 18 to 30 month alcohol awareness program”.
