The news comes shortly after Brolin was caught on tape allegedly getting into a drunken fistfight with an unknown male at O'Brien's Irish Pub in Santa Monica, Calif. on Saturday, Nov. 2. TMZ reported that the incident occurred near the front entrance of the bar after it closed at 2 a.m. The fight came to an end, however, with Brolin sharing a hug with the other man. That same weekend, Brolin was also caught on camera getting into an alleged verbal altercation with a cab driver at a Los Angeles Del Taco drive-thru.

"Are you going to be laying off the booze a bit?" TMZ asked. "That's it," Brolin said. "Completely done."
