“The Hills” Star Arrested for Sixth Drinking-Related Offense

Posted in Drunk Driving

Jason Wahler of the MTV reality show “The Hills” is facing almost certain jail time following a drunk-driving arrest in Newport Beach, California. This is at least the sixth drinking-related arrest for Wahler, 23, in recent years.

Wahler was taken into custody at 10:54 p.m. Friday evening on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, Newport Beach Sgt. Evan Sailor confirms to PEOPLE magazine. He was released on his own recognizance hours later.

Last week, video surfaced online of Wahler being cuffed by Mexican police in Cabo San Lucas March 11 after he allegedly got into a fight at a nightclub.

In a 2007 interview with PEOPLE, Wahler admits: "I did try drugs, but it was never my thing. It was alcohol, for sure. It would take me about 10 drinks before that other side came out. It’s like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde."

"I’m embarrassed as hell, but I really do not remember my arrests," added Wahler, who did a stint with inpatient rehab in 2007. "They’re blackouts. And that’s scary."
