Garrett Hedlund Sued Over “Horrible” Car Crash While Allegedly Drunk

The mother-daughter duo stated, “Hedlund had red, bloodshot, and watery eyes with extremely slurred speech and coordination and was so drunk that he was unresponsive to the police and witnesses; Hedlund was so inebriated he was unable to walk and was forced sit in the Jeep; and Hedlund had finished drinking minutes prior to the accident.”

Per People, he was released on bail after the Jan. 24 arrest.

The Tron: Legacy alum was arraigned in February 2020, where a judge ordered that he seek counseling, according to court records obtained by E! News. Hedlund pleaded no contest to one count of DUI and was found guilty, while a second DUI charge was dismissed.

“When the incident occurred, Garrett immediately sought treatment which was successful,” his rep confirmed to E! News in November 2020. “Today, he is in a solid and great place.”

A source also told E! News that Hedlund, who shares 12-month-old son Rhodes with actress Emma Roberts, was “doing well” following his run-in with the police. The insider said that the DUI arrest “wasn’t something that actually threatened a split between” Hedlund and Roberts, 30.

In their lawsuit against Hedlund, Venegas and Castillo are seeking punitive damages.
