Willie Hantz, who played the role of a villain on the CBS’ reality series 14th edition of “Big Brother,” has been arrested for driving under the influence in Lafayette, Los Angeles.
According to Cpl. Paul L. Mouton — a spokesman for the Lafayette Police Department, police officers were sent to an area that was packed with local bars around 2:30 in the morning to banish a huge group of people that was streaming out of multiple nightclubs. Then, the cops spotted 34-year-old Willie Hantz driving his car to the back of a parking lot where, for unknown reasons, he got out of his vehicle and took off on foot.
Right after a short pursuit, police officers were able to catch up with Willie Hantz and they subsequently took him into custody on suspicion of being under the influence of alcohol. The reality star was booked on an OWI, which is short for operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
The office of the Lafayette Parish Sheriff said that the Louisiana native currently remains behind bars and his bail has not been set yet.
Prior to his driving under the influence arrest, Willie Hantz informed his Facebook followers fortuitously about his party plans. He wrote on his wall, “McKinley street pub cum get sum laf. Let’s get stupid.”
Willie Hantz is said to be the younger brother of “Survivor” star Russell Hantz, who also had a run-in with the law when he was arrested in 2010 on a battery charge after allegedly shoving a woman at a Lafayette nightclub.
