Scott Wilson's role as the alcoholic farmer Hershel Greene on AMC's "The Walking Dead" has apparently carried over into real life.

According to The  Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the 70-year-old actor was arrested last week for DUI after police spotted him speeding through Peachtree City, GA. Officers also noticed that his car "swerved back and forth" several times.

Wilson failed a field sobriety test after complaining that the road was too "slanted". A breathalyzer test determined that Wilson's blood alcohol concentration was well over the legal limit.
