-- George just gave us the greatest statement ever ... “Tied one on last night.  Not feeling great this morning.  I was trying to sleep it off,  unfortunately, it was on the casino floor.”

George Lopez
had one too many last night at a Canada casino -- law enforcement tells TMZ, the comedian was arrested for public intoxication after passing out on the casino floor.

Law enforcement sources tell us Caesars Windsor security alerted police to the Lopez situation -- presumably after they found him on the floor -- and officers subsequently arrested him
inside the casino bar at Caesars Windsor.
 
No charges are being filed against Lopez -- we're told he was pretty much dumped in a drunk tank to let him sober up.

Lopez had performed at the casino just prior to his arrest and is scheduled to perform again tonight.

Lopez has been released and we're told he will perform tonight.

Is that such a good idea after having a kidney transplant?

He is a funny guy. Too bad he dumped his wife that helped him to get rich enough to pass out on a casino floor. Maybe if he still had her he wouldn't be cutting up on the floor. You know what would be funny was if the casinos had like drunk insurance. If one of their guests passes out, they could just hook him up in a bed and then charge him later..

They could have even put him on a cot in the broom closet. That would probably be a lot better than having the police haul him to the drunk tank. I think the tank is just a cell in a jail or maybe a room in an ER with a locked door. That can't be fun.

makes me really sad, I have heard he parties hardy, but this is risking his life, and it would be a damn shame to lose him! Come on George, you know your kidney cannot process that alcohol! Your fans do not want to lose you!
