David Arquette has fallen off the wagon and started drinking again after being spotted in a bar last Saturday night (15.06.13).

The 'Scream 4' star - who spent four weeks at the Betty Ford Clinic in January 2011 to be treated for alcoholism - was seen at Popkins Tavern in Richmond, Virginia, drinking Scotch and according to a fellow drinker he was ''slurring his words''.

Local R&B producer Somnate - real name Nathan Keeyes - told RadarOnline.com: ''It was so random. He was literally the only dude sitting at the bar, by himself. I wouldn't have recognized him if my friend hadn't ... He was so f***d up. He smelled like alcohol and he was slurring his words.''

An employee at the bar has confirmed Arquette was drinking Macallan 18 Scotch, a fine whisky which sells for $165 per bottle.

Somnate also revealed the 41-year-old actor got chatting to him and his friends and bought them tequila shots.

He revealed: ''David bought me and my two friends tequila shots as soon as we sat down. But he told us he didn't take shots. He just kept ordering his drinks.''

Later on, Arquette started talking to a group of locals who he had met the night before at the Club Rouge strip joint and they discussed him paying for one of the group who had been celebrating his 21st birthday to have a lap dance with several girls.

The 'Conception' star then took the group he'd met at Popkins Tavern to the nearby Paper Moon strip club and paid for Somnate and his friends to get in.

Arquette - whose ex-wife is Courteney Cox, with whom he has a nine-year-old daughter Coco - ''was talking to girls left and right'' and at one stage he showered a stripper who wasn't getting much attention with more than a hundred one dollar bills.

Somnate added: ''There was this one girl who was dancing and she was really skinny, not as thick as the other girls ... David disappeared for a couple minutes. All of a sudden, he comes out of nowhere and literally throws like more than a hundred ones at her. He made it rain!''

Arquette and Cox split in October 2010, but waited to file for divorce until June 2012 and the marriage was officially dissolved by a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge in May this year.

Arquette previously claimed he had his first beer when he was just four years old after snatching one from his dad.
