Portland police tell Us that the La Bamba actor, 55, pulled up to a patrol car to ask an officer for directions. The officer suspected that Phillips was intoxicated and asked him to exit his vehicle while the officer completed an unrelated traffic stop.

According to police, Phillips failed several field sobriety tests. He was taken to the Portland Police Department, where he took another breathalyzer test that showed his blood alcohol concentration was 0.20 percent, which is more than double the legal limit in the state of Texas.
