General Hospital (GH) spoilers reveal that Tyler Christopher (ex-Nikolas Cassadine) was arrested for public intoxication according to TMZ’s sources. The cops were called about someone sleeping on the ground close to an airport terminal, so they ultimately showed up to investigate.
The Burbank Police Department offered up some details on the incident, which involved Christopher showing obvious signs of intoxication once he was awoken.
Christopher reportedly couldn’t take care of himself at the scene, so the officers handcuffed the actor and booked him for public intoxication.
The former GH star was eventually released with a court date according to the same sources.
