Ray Donovan's Daryll aka Pooch Hall arrested for DUI, felony child endangerment
The cops reportedly caught the actor in Burbank around 7.30 pm on Wednesday after witnesses saw the toddler on his lap steering the wheel
Pooch Hall, best known for his role as Daryll in the Showtime show ‘Ray Donovan’, was arrested Wednesday night for DUI and felony child endangerment. He allegedly asked his 2-year-old son to drive because he was too drunk to drive. The cops reportedly caught the actor in Burbank around 7.30 pm, after witnesses saw the toddler on his lap steering the wheel before the car veered off and smashed into a parked car.
TMZ reports that there were no injuries, however, his son Djulian Bryant Hall was seen crying in the front seat. The child’s car seat was in the junk in the back seat and according to the witnesses, it was not installed. The toddler has since been united with his mother Linda Baptista Hall.
When the cops arrived, the 41-year-old actor was too drunk to even walk and had an alcohol level of .25, which is more than 3 times the legal limit. Hall was taken to jail, where he's held on a $100,000 bail.
On 'Ray Donovan' Hall plays the role of the titular protagonist's (portrayed by Liev Schreiber) half-brother - the illegitimate son of Donovan's father. He has played the role of Daryll, who is a professional boxer and a limo driver, on all six seasons of the show. Hall is also a trained boxer like his character and has won the Southern New England Golden Gloves in 1994.
'Ray Donovan' returns to Showtime with season 6 on October 28.
