Walking Dead Star Seth Gilliam Arrested for DUI, Speeding

Actor was driving at 107 miles per hour, cops say.

Published May 5, 2015

It isn't a good week for the stars of The Walking Dead. Days after Chad L. Coleman, who played Tyreese on the show, had to apologize for going off on passengers in a New York City subway, his co-star Seth Gilliam has been arrested for reckless driving and DUI.

Gilliam, who plays the priest on the hit AMC show, was arrested in Peachtree City, Ga. — very close to where The Walking Dead is filmed — and charged with DUI, pot possession and reckless driving, according to TMZ.


The cop, who said Gilliam was burning rubber at 107 mph, said he smelled alcohol on his breath and discovered a joint hidden in his arm rest. Gilliam admitted he had three beers and a shot that night.

Hopefully Gilliam will post bond before he's needed on set — The Walking Dead begins filming in just a few weeks!
