Gary Busey Driving Drunk Again?

Gary Busey was pulled over in Malibu Thursday on suspicions that he was driving drunk. He was stopped after sheriff’s deputies watched him driving his black Mercedes and swerving in and out of his lane. This happened the very same day Busey was named one of the official contestants on the upcoming season of Celebrity Apprentice.

According to RadarOnline, fellow motorists informed the sheriff’s deputies of their suspicion that a driver was operating erratically. They went to the area on the Pacific Coast Highway where the report came from and found Busey weaving in and out of the lane.

Even though Gary Busey had been swerving, however, he did pass all of the sobriety tests administered by the deputies when he was stopped.

“There were about a half dozen officers surrounding Busey and they were conducting field sobriety tests,” a source told RadarOnline. “His eyes were wobbly and he was all over the place. He was a mess.”

Lt. Rich Erickson is a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. He told reporters that Busey was definitely not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol.

“Apparently he’s not that good a driver,” Lt. Erickson said.

Busey has a history of alcohol and drug abuse that has put him in rehab more than once. He appeared on Celebrity Rehab back in 2008 under the guidance of the infamous Dr. Drew.  It is clear from watching him on talk shows that drugs and alcohol have left lasting impairments. He was in a serious motorcycle accident in 1988, that also resulted in lasting injuries. It will be very interesting to see how he does competing as a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice, vying for a position working for Donald Trump.

Gary Busey is a stage and film actor who got his start in music, playing in The Rubber Band. He is actually on several recordings made by Leon Russell, as well. He had a Comedy Central show called I’m with Busey, and most recently appeared in the 2010 Adam Sandler film Grownups.
