'Vampire Diaries' Actor Zach Roerig Arrested for DUI in Ohio

Zach Roerig, best known for playing Matt Donovan on the hit The CW series The Vampire Diaries, was arrested for DUI this past weekend.

The 35-year-old actor was in Ohio for Memorial Day Weekend and he was pulled over by cops at around 2:30am on Sunday (May 24) when the police saw his car had no front plates.

TMZ reports that “cops noticed Zach‘s slurred speech and bloodshot eyes and say he reeked of booze.” The outlet says that when cops conducted field sobriety tests, the actor told them, “This is very hard, I can’t do this when I’m f–king…”

Zach‘s voice then trailed off and the cop asked what he meant and he reportedly said, “When I can’t have a beer.”

After being taken to jail for misdemeanor DUI, sources say that Zach peed in his holding cell. He was eventually released on his own recognizance and he will be arraigned on June 4.

Zach most recently starred in a new USA Network series that was just canceled.
