Mickey Rourke busted for DUI...on his Vespa

Actor Mickey Rourke was arrested on DUI charges in Miami Beach early this morning on his Vespa. "Mickey Rourke was arrested for DUI at 4 a.m. this morning while riding a green Vespa," a sergeant from the Miami Beach police department said. "He made a U-turn on a red light. We stopped him and gave him a classic road sobriety test. He failed so we brought him in. He blew a .081, which was over the limit, and was locked up for 24 hours at the Miami Dade County jail." According to the arrest report, Rourke said a four-letter expletive at the time he was stopped by police, who described the actor's face as flushed, his eyes bloodshot and his speech slurred. "I'm not drunk, I didn't even drink that much," Rourke is quoted as saying.

He's been a stone cold drunk ever since he had to play the character Charles Bukowski in the movie Barfly. It's time he read the book Disco Hypnotic and got his grip.
