Jared Leto

I would’ve written this post sooner, but I accidentally spent all morning scrolling on the ‘My So-Called Life’ Wikipedia page and daydreaming about finally hooking up with Jordan Catalano.

Shannon Leto, the brother of Academy Award winner Jared Leto and drummer for the band 30 Seconds to Mars, has been arrested for a DUI in Los Angeles. He was arrested last night, Monday June 16, 2014 in Hollywood.

At around 7 pm police responded to a stalled vehicle on Fairfax Blvd. (Hm… maybe that’s what was causing all that Los Angeles traffic…)

According to the police report, when officers approached Leto, they could tell that he was under the influence. Furthermore, after performing a background check, they realized that Leto had an outstanding traffic warrant for driving without a license. Uh oh.

Leto was arrested and as of now is still in custody. He’s currently being held on a $5,000 bail for the DUI and a $2,500 bail for driving without a license. If convicted of a DUI, Leto could face some serious consequences including jail time or community service.

Brother Jared Leto is also making the headlines today for signing on to a new movie that would be his first role since his Academy Award winning performance in ‘Dallas Buyers Club’. Jared Leto is in talks to star in ‘Brilliance’, directed by Julius Onah and co-starring Noomi Rapace. Leto would be replacing Will Smith in the film, who had to drop out to work on a Sony movie about concussions and football players.
