Jared Leto, the actor whose follicles almost caused as big a stir as his Academy Award-winning performance in Dallas Buyers Club, received some bad news this week: His big brother got arrested!
On June 16, Shannon Leto was pulled over for DUI around 7 p.m. local time in Hollywood, according to TMZ. Cops reportedly saw his car stalled on Fairfax Boulevard; they said Shannon showed signs of impairment, which led to his arrest.
To add an extra helping of bad news on top of this unfortunate sundae, the 44-year-old reportedly has an outstanding traffic warrant for driving without a license. That means he’s looking at a bail of $5,000 for the DUI offense and another $2,500 for that unlicensed activity. Last TMZ heard, he was also still in jail.
If Shannon’s name sounds familiar (beyond that whole Leto last name), that’s probably because he’s the drummer for Thirty Seconds to Mars. That, of course, is the band his baby brother helped found back in 1998 and which released a new album, Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams, just last year.
But even with all Shannon’s success in the music biz, we can’t imagine Mama Leto is going to be too happy to hear of her son’s run-in. We saw her at the Oscars; she looks tough.
