Why was Irene Bedard arrested twice in 3 days? A look at Disney's 'Pocahontas' star's wildly-drunken incidents
The 53-year-old was first detained on suspicion of domestic violence. Bedard was holding a belt in her hand and said something like, 'Look, they sent the white man to come get me!'
Irene Bedard has been arrested twice in three days after wildly-drunken incidents, police said. The actress, who voiced the title character in Disney's animated ‘Pocahontas’, was first detained on suspicion of domestic violence on Friday night, November 27, at her former husband's Ohio home. According to law enforcement officials, when they arrived at the scene, Bedard was holding a belt in her hand and said something like, “Look, they sent the white man to come get me!”
The police report also mentioned that the 53-year-old seemed very intoxicated, smelled heavily of booze, and was not even able to stand straight. Bedard’s ex reportedly claimed that she beat his door and after entering the house, started screaming at her teenage son before kicking him as he tried to restrain her. Not just that, when cops tried to get her into the back of the squad car, she yelled and punched. Police said Bedard's 17-year-old son, who wants his mother to get help, did not press any charges against her mother. But due to the alleged incident, she faces domestic violence, assault, and resisting arrest charges.
Bedard did not spend days in jail as she paid the bond fees. But was again restrained on Monday, November 30, after she allegedly harassed a hotel’s front desk clerk. It has been said that when the cop, who was called to the scene, tried to take her down, he felt she was under the influence and was also behaving aggressively. Bedard allegedly charged at the officer, who had to pin her down to arrest her. Also, several officers had to drag her to put behind the bars. The second time her charges were not that serious as the first time as she was detained for disorderly conduct.
Along with Disney's ‘Pocahontas’, Bedard has also voiced for 2018's ‘Ralph Breaks The Internet’. The actress has worked in the 1998 film ‘Smoke Signals’ and appeared as Wichapi in HBO's Westworld back in 2018.
