Michael Madsen sent to rehab following Malibu arrest

Actor Michael Madsen was ordered last week to check into an alcohol treatment facility by a judge at the Van Nuys courthouse. Madsen was on probation after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Malibu last September, but his probation was reportedly revoked, prompting the judge to order him to a treatment facility for at least 30 days, according to TMZ. 

Madsen was pulled over in September on Pacific Coast Highway near Malibu Canyon Road after sheriff’s deputies spotted him driving erratically, Sgt. Jim Braden of the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station said at the time. After failing a field sobriety test, the actor was arrested, had his car impounded and was booked at the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station. 

The Malibu Times is the first newspaper in Malibu, serving the community since 1946.
