Cortese’s Tuesday message came just two days after the Supernatural actor was taken into police custody and booked on two counts of assault and one count of public intoxication. The actor became involved in a physical altercation at an Austin, Texas, club called Stereotype, during which he allegedly hit a bartender in the face before growing aggressive with a friend he was with.
According to the arrest affidavit, when authorities arrived at the scene, Padalecki was uncooperative and displayed “intoxicated behavior.” They eventually arrested him after his refusal to answer their questions and his repeated touching of the officers.
Online records show that the actor is no longer in jail. He has not yet commented on his arrest.
