Brolin Busted

Shreveport Happens

7/12/2008 3:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Actors Josh Brolin, Jeffrey Wright and five other crew members of the Oliver Stone directed film, "W." were popped by cops outside Stray Cats bar earlier this morning in Shreveport, LA.

Apparently a crew member of the movie was arrested for public intoxication and resisting arrest. That's when police say Brolin, Wright and the others interfered. According to the Shreveport Times, the actors allegedly put up such a fuss that the police at the nightclub had to call for backup.

Brolin and Wright were both arrested during the melee.

Calls to their reps have not been returned.

Bossier City    

Thank you so much Jeff (#57) for your comments. You said everything I would like people reading these messages to hear about our sister city. I would imagine you are like me - you don't usually get caught up in leaving comments online but when I started reading some of the things being said about Shreveport and our part of the country- I really wanted to say something -but you said if for me. We are enjoying the fact that these movie companies are coming here and helping our economy and I imagine if you asked these actors they would say they have had an overall good experience- with few exceptions.

I am proud to say I was born and raised here in Shreveport, I have seen and lived in many other parts of the country, But choze to come home,We have problems like every other city, But its the people that sets us apart. We have more good than bad I promise you. You people that trash the cops are the first to change your tune when you need one. And if you act in public like you post on forums I would say that was fairly often. The officers were not waiting outside to pounce on these guys, They were called By an employee who was doing there job. The officers were out numbered by at least 30 crew members....Yea I would call for back up!....Wrap partys get wild, Rowdy drunks in Shrevport are no different than any other town I have lived in.
Stupid is Stupid reguarless of the zip code. Shreveport is a great place and is getting even better, As is the state. As for the negitive and nasty remarks. If you had such a bad experiance here it says alot about the crowd you ran with, and the areas you choze to visit ...If you dont like Shreveport I20 is ready when you are. And we will be even better without ASS's like you!
Ya'll come back now ya hear!

Oh Really? is an idiot    

Comment 65, Oh Really? Shreveport is 20 miles from Texas and 30 miles from Arkansas, so how you figure it's "the armpit of Louisiana, located on the Gulf coast". The SPD will release the police video when the investigation is over and you will realize that these "actors" were wrong, for interfering with the police, remaining after forbidden and resisting arrest, which I'm sure is illegal in ALL 50 states. And by those pictures, I wouldn't have realized that was Josh Brolin and I don't know who this Wright guy is.
