The 30-year-old man was swinging side-to-side and slurring his speech when he was approached by police on Mission Boulevard near Thomas Avenue shortly before 12:30 a.m., said Officer Billy Hernandez.
As officers were talking with him, Teller lost his balance and almost fell into the street, Hernandez said. “So at that point they determined he was unable to care for himself and place him under arrest,” he said.
Teller was first taken to a detox center but he was uncooperative with staff, Hernandez said, so officers took him to jail.where he was booked on suspicion of being drunk in public. He was released later that day.
Teller has appeared in such movies as Whiplash, Rabbit Hole and The Spectacular Now and War Dogs.
