'Shameless' star Ethan Cutkosky arrested for DUI in Los Angeles

Episode 609

Episode 609

A regular on the Showtime series "Shameless" was arrested last week in Burbank on suspicion of driving under the influence after officers conducting a traffic stop smelled marijuana coming from his auto.

Police say Ethan was driving his orange BMW at around 10:30 PM when he began to straddle the traffic lanes, which prompted cops to then pull him over.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department records show Cutkosky was released early Thursday morning on $5,000 bail. Police are waiting for the results of a blood test that Cutkosky submitted to that evening to determine what chemicals may have been in his system. He was charged with a misdemeanor but no further information on his charges was available.

Representatives for Cutkosky and Showtime didn't immediately return a request for comment Tuesday.

On Shameless, Cutkosky plays Carl, the second youngest member of the Gallagher brood - whom all struggle to raise themselves at the hands of an alcoholic father (played by William H. Macy). But for years, Carl was a trouble teenager who liked to party and get in trouble with law often. But Sunday's season 8 premiere saw him back on the streets, selling meth.
