Just days after getting booted from the “Big Brother” house following an epic meltdown, Willie Hantz was arrested in his home state of Louisiana on suspicion of drunk driving Thursday (July 26) morning, according to TMZ.
Hantz was arrested at 2:07 a.m. for operating a vehicle while intoxicated (OWI) in Lafayette Parish, La. and is reportedly still in custody. Fans of the show will be happy (?) to know that Hantz is still sporting the mohawk he gave himself in the “BB” house in his mugshot taken Thursday.
Hantz was kicked out of the “Big Brother” house on July 20 for attacking cast mate Joe Arvin during an argument. Following the altercation, executive producer Allison Grodner informed the houseguests that violence is not tolerated and Hantz wouldn’t be returning.
UPDATE: The Lafayette City Police Department initially received a call about a fight in a parking lot near some bars, but when police arrived, there was no fight. Cops were in the process of clearing the crowd when they saw a yellow 2012 Camaro driving toward the back of the lot. Police were approaching the vehicle when Hantz opened the door and attempted to flee. A “very short pursuit” ensued before Hantz was apprehended. TMZ reports that he refused a breathalyzer and blood test to determine his blood alcohol content.
