PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. (AP) -- An actor on the television show "The Walking Dead" has been charged with driving drunk in Georgia, where the show is filmed.

Peachtree City police arrested 70-year-old Scott Wilson after someone called 911 to report a Chrysler PT Cruiser driving erratically. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the arrest happened Aug. 18 at 2 a.m.

Wilson plays a farmer and recovering alcoholic who's part of a band of survivors after a zombie apocalypse on the AMC drama.

The arresting officer wrote in a report that Wilson said the car was his sister's and he'd been drinking scotch and wine at a restaurant. The officer says he was swaying and asked to do yoga poses instead of a field sobriety test.

The report says tests indicated an alcohol level above the legal limit.
