Security to Ed Lauter: 'You're Too Drunk to Drive'

1/18/2010 4:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Character actor Ed Lauter wanted to drive home from a Golden Globes party over the weekend -- but security thought the slurring star had one too many drinks to get behind the wheel and stopped him cold.

Ed Lauter: Click to watch
Lauter was getting into his car outside Chateau Marmont when security intervened and told the guy to take a cab instead ... a suggestion he was none too happy with.

Though Ed kept saying he was "fine" and even dropped coach Larry Brown's name in an attempt to win points with the guard, he eventually relented -- and got a taxi.

Attempts to reach Ed for comment were unsuccessful.

That security guard did the right thing. He may have saved a life that night, maybe 2,3... His demeanour was very respectful and he genuinely cared for the guy. You heard it in his voice.

You're a champ in my book dude.

#9 - Tiv - before you make such a snarky comment, make sure you are making it to the right post. I didn't mention age.
Maybe YOU should go to the Disney site and click on "Let me Learn My numbers".
