It's been a rough week for Willie Hantz. Less than a week after being kicked off of Big Brother for trying to headbutt a fellow contestant, has gotten himself sent to the slammer. Willie Hantz, who played the role of the villain on the CBS reality series' 14th edition before getting the boot last week, was arrested early this morning for drinking and driving in Lafayette Parish, Louisiana at 2:07 AM
According to Cpl. Paul L. Mouton, spokesman for the Lafayette Police Department, cops were sent to an area filled with local bars around 2:00 a.m. to disperse a large crowd that was streaming out of several nightclubs. There, they spotted the 34-year-old reality star driving his car to the back of a parking lot where, for reasons unknown, he exited his vehicle and took off on foot.
After a brief pursuit, officers caught up with Hantz and he was taken into custody on suspicion of being under the influence and booked on an OWI, or operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
The Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office said the Louisiana native currently remains in lockup and his bail has not yet been set.
Before his bust, Hantz fortuitously informed his Facebook followers about his party plans, writing on his wall, "McKinley street pub cum get sum laf. Let's get stupid."
As reality mavens well know, Hantz is the younger brother of "Survivor" scoundrel Russell Hantz, himself no stranger to Louisiana's Finest after getting collared in 2010 on a battery charge after allegedly shoving a woman at a Lafayette nightclub.
