Austin Nichols Arrested for DUI

Sadly, yet another…

Austin Nichols, aka Jake Gyllenhaal‘s BFF, was arrested for a DUI in Jackson, Michigan at 2:30 a.m. this morning.

Seems like Austin, 27, poured his sorrows into alcohol as his short-lived HBO series John from Cincinnati recently got the ax. The surfer drama aired its season finale earlier this month and will not return for a second season.

Nichols was administered a breath test and hauled off to Jackson County Jail. BAC measurements were not released as of this morning.

Austin has been living in Clark Lake this summer, where he’s been staying with extended family members.

# 3

why is everyone getting aressted now? is it some trend? lindsay, paris, nicole and now him…

# 4

he is sooooooooooooo hot

# 5

Is this going to become the typical “look of Hollywood remorse” mug shot? Perhaps he doesn’t realize Michigan will sentence him to more than a couple of hours jail time.

# 6

Yuck, why is he smirking for? Ditch him, Jake!

# 7

this is becoming the new trend in hollywood…

the cool thing is that I live about 30 minutes away from jackson, mi
and nothing exciting ever happens here

hopefully he exactly is put in jail for longer than a day

Michigan is usually pretty hard on drunk drivers so he probably won’t get off

You see what Jake’s fraternizing with Reese has done to poor Austin? LOL

They just do not learn, do they? Drinking and driving. No. No. No.

finally a guy gets into trouble. thats cool, as long as he didnt kill anyone. plus he looks hot in the mugshot.

Ah, thats going to break a few peoples hearts knowing he was in Michigan and not were they thought.

OMG joe, you are so gay..only gay people think he is hot!

I know that Gyllenhaal is politically active. He shot a commercial for Rock the Vote, and along with his sister Maggie Gyllenhaal, visited the University of Southern California to encourage students to vote during the 2004 U.S. Election.[54] He also campaigned for Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry.[55] He has said, however, that “it frustrates me when actors talk politics; I’m political and I make choices in my movies that I think are political. I try and say things with what I do. Rightly or wrongly, young actors have all the power.”[56]

Raised in a family concerned with social issues, Gyllenhaal has campaigned on behalf of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), an organization which his entire family strongly supports.[57][58] Environmentally conscious, he recycles regularly, and said in an interview that he spends $400 a year to have trees planted in a Mozambique forest, partly to promote the Future Forests program.[59][60] After filming The Day After Tomorrow, he flew to the Arctic to promote awareness of climate change.[61][62]

In his spare time, Gyllenhaal enjoys woodworking and cooking.[63] He has said, “I am not a card-carrying Buddhist, but I do try to practice mindfulness” and it is his goal to meditate every day.[64][65

KC, this has nothing to do with Jake. This was Austin’s doing and he is responsible.

Rumur, that has nothing to do with this story.

This is called a SMUGSHOT!

Well thats what you get for spending the summer in the lame state of Michigan. Nothing to do but get drunk and drive, wham, DUI out of nowhere.

This hasn’t got a damned thing to do with Jake. Jake has a lot of friends.You could have said Austin Nichols, of HBO’s John From Cincinnati, to describe him, instead of Jake’s BFF.Austin has other actor friends besides Jake. You’ve proved a point tho. And that is that no one would care about Austin Nichols, or even about him being drunk if it weren’t for the fact that all you know about him is he is Jake’s friend. There is lots of other stuff to know about him as an individual, but no one probably ever will bcz everyone cares only about Jake. Sorry, Austin! Have another beer on me! LOL!

John from Cincinnati was fcuking HORRIBLE. And he has that same dorky gay smirk on his face.

His homosexual relationship with Jake ended awhile ago, Jake’s moved on.

Why is he smirking???It looks like he is proud of being arrested…

Ha, I just drove through Jackson yesterday, crazy. I tried watching that show but it seemed like it just tried too hard.

Why is Jakes name even attached to this.

DUI is the new black.
