Why was Garrett Hedlund arrested?

Hedlund was arrested for public intoxication. The actor’s arrest on Saturday night reportedly did not last long as the actor soon walked out after posting the required bond amount. Franklin County Sheriff's Office confirmed to People magazine that the actor was "no longer here” when tried to be contacted. It is being rumored that the Hollywood star might be going through a rocky phase post his split with Emma Roberts. None of the actors have come forward on their split. MEAWW will keep you posted.
This is not the first time Hedlund got into legal trouble. The actor is being sued for a DUI charge from January 2020. According to court documents obtained by People magazine, the actor is being sued for negligence by a mother and daughter. They have alleged that they were "severely" injured in a "horrible head-on crash" after his blood-alcohol level tested at .36 percent, four times the legal limit of .08. The actor had pleaded no contest to one count and was found guilty, whereas, his second DUI charge was dismissed. The plaintiffs are reportedly asking for punitive damages and a jury trial.

Have Emma Roberts and Garrett Hedlund split?

While both Emma and Garrett are off the grid as of now, multiple sources told People magazine that the duo broke things off a few weeks ago. The two were reportedly going through a rough patch for the last few months. An insider dropped a hint about the situation to People magazine saying, “It's sad, and they are trying their best to co-parent. It's been hard.”  The two dated for three years and have a one-year-old son together.


Roberts has always been private about her love life. In an interview with Cosmopolitan in 2019, the New York native asserted, “I never want to talk about relationships I'm in or that are ending or have ended.” She added, “It's hard enough to be with someone by yourself, let alone with an audience. Growing up is hard." While Emma dated Evan Peters from 2012 to 2019, Hedlund was briefly engaged to Kirsten Dunst. The two dated from 2012 to 2016.
