Actor Brandon Buddy is facing a charge of driving while intoxicated (Dwi) after he was arrested by police in Texas.

The former One Life to Live soap star was pulled over by cops on Sunday (18Jan15) after raising eyebrows at a gas station in Austin, where Buddy, who was reportedly covered in scratches, picked up some beer and sped off in his car.

According to Tmz.com, he was taken to a local hospital for medical attention, before he was placed in police custody.

He was booked for the Dwi charge and was still behind bars as Wenn went to press.

The arrest is the latest legal trouble for Buddy - he is also under investigation for possession of dangerous drugs after he was found with prescription medication in his car earlier this month (04Jan15).
