Famous Painter Gets Arrested for DUI

Law Offices of William W. Bruzzo
The painter Thomas Kinkade

The painter Thomas Kinkade, was recently arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence(California Penal Code 23152(a)(b)). Kinkade’s popular paintings of American landscapes and cottages have graced the homes of many and made him into one of the most-collected artists in America.

Kinkade was initially pulled over by California Highway Patrol for not having a front license plate on his Mercedes. However, because of the odor of alcohol emitting from his person, he was given some field sobriety tests. After failing those, he was arrested and later released on bail.

Kinkade’s unfortunate arrest came just two weeks after one of his companies filed for bankruptcy in San Jose. See, Penal Code Sections 23152(a), (b).
