-- 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.

Even laying on the floor passed out like that, GL is still a million times funnier than Arsenio Hall. AH is both the unfunniest and luckiest so-called comedian on the planet. But I do watch his show from time to time but only to see how unfunny AH can get. And he's getting more unfunny each time I watch. At least GL is funny.

Lopez is a mexican racist, he always has sh*# to say about Whites. Hope he is proud of his kidney gift and hope to see him next to Phil Hoffman soon, have another one ya greasy taco boy.

George should show that photo to the crowd and tell them he was just doing his best impression of a tortilla. Take that back, GL is kinda fat, that was his impression of a giant burrito.

WTH??? He's given the gift of life with a new kidney and he does the biggest no-no of an organ transplant recipient and he drinks? I don't know weather to be mad or just feel sorry for him. He's out of the running for another one when his fails...transplanted organs don't last your whole lifetime...kidney transplants have a 1/2 life of 12 years. Maybe if he'd had to wait for his kidney on the donor list he may be more grateful for it. But, that will never happen now that his drinking is public record.

I don't know how he will include this in his performance but its going to be funny as h*ll. One thing George is known for is laughing at himself.

Sounds to me like the Casino doesn't know when a person has had to much. Bartenders and servers have a responsibility to cut someone off when they appear to have had to much to drink.
