Actor Miles Teller was arrested and charged with public intoxication in San Diego


Actor Miles Teller is out of jail after being arrested for being drunk in public in San Diego over the weekend. 

San Diego Police officer Billy Hernandez said the 30-year-old was arrested after officers spotted him swaying and falling into the street around 12:25 a.m.

A police report obtained by US Weekly notes that the actor was unable to take care of himself so authorities took him to a detox facility. 

“Upon arrival at the detox center, Teller was uncooperative with staff and police took him to the jail and arrested him,” the San Diego Police Department told Us Weekly. 

Police said he was in jail for four hours before being released on bail. 

Teller tweeted Monday saying, "there was no evidence to charge me with a crime." 

Despite Teller's claim, police confirmed his arrest to ABC affiliate KGTV.

Teller's acting credits include "Whiplash," ''The Spectacular Now," ''Allegiant" and "Fantastic Four." His next film, "Thank You for Your Service," will hit theaters Oct. 27.
