Actor Christopher McDonald was arrested for driving while over the legal alcohol limit early on Wednesday morning.

McDonald, who played Shooter McGavin in Adam Sandler's hit film Happy Gilmore, was arrested by Highway Patrol officers in Wilmington, North Carolina, where it is thought he had been filming a movie called "The Squeeze."

Tests allegedly showed his blood-alcohol level was almost twice the legal limit.

He was still in custody as WENN went to press.
