Los Angeles - Michael Madsen has been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI).

The Kill Bill actor was spotted driving erratically on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu earlier this week and was reportedly found to have a blood alcohol level more than twice the legal limit when apprehended by police, reports TMZ.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokesperson Steve Whitmore revealed the star took a breathalyser test which showed a level of .20, with the legal limit set at .08.

Follows previous charge of child endangerment

He has been charged with a misdemeanour DUI and bail set at $15 000. His Pontiac GTO was towed away from the scene.

This follows Michael's arrest in March at his Malibu home on felony charges of child endangerment with cruelty to a child, where he posted $100 000 bail before he was released.

Michael's lawyer Perry Wander said: "He found his son smoking pot and they got into an argument when he tried to take it away. It's a family matter and Michael asks that his family's privacy be respected."

However the case was not taken any further due to insufficient evidence.
