Actor Miles Teller Arrested in San Diego, Released Hours Later: SDPD


Actor Miles Teller was arrested and booked into jail early Sunday morning after failing to cooperate with San Diego police. 

Teller, known for movies like “Whiplash,” “Divergent,” “War Dogs” and more, came into contact with police at approximately 12:30 a.m. Sunday n the 4300 block of Mission Boulevard, off Grand Avenue in Pacific Beach, according to SDPD Officer Billy Hernandez. 

During the contact, Hernandez said, officers noticed he was likely under the influence. 

He lost his balance and almost fell into the street. 

“He was drunk enough to not care for his own safety,” Hernandez said.

At that point, police said, they determined he was not able to take care of his own safety. Officers detained him and took him to a detox center so he could sober up. 

However, Hernandez said, he was rejected by the staff there.

Teller was charged with being drunk in public and booked into San Diego County Jail and released for hours later without bail. 

NBC 7 has reached out to Teller’s manager for comment. We will update this story when we hear back.
