Actor Ryan Merriman pulled his car too far into the intersection at a red light Sunday night and, upon further inspection by patrol officers, had been driving under the influence, according to Newport Beach police.
The Chocktaw, Oklahoma-born 28-year-old failed a field sobriety test after the 11:30 p.m. traffic stop and was later booked into Newport Beach city jail in lieu of $2,500 bail, says department spokeswoman Kathy Lowe.
The actor's blood-alcohol level was not released.
Merriman has appeared in 25 films, four television series and as a guest star in several projects since breaking into the biz in TV commercials at age 8. According to his imdb page, his credits include the movies The Ring 2 and Final Destination 3, as well as the hit ABC Family Channel drama Pretty Little Liars, in which he portrays Ian Thomas, the sinister charmer everyone loves to hate.
