This isn't the first time that Garrett has found himself involved in an alcohol-related incident though.

Back in 2020, he was allegedly under the influence when he passed out behind the wheel and drove into another car, injuring two women and two children.

Garrett's rep did confirm that he sought treatment after the accident, but he is reportedly being sued for negligence in the drunk driving incident.

The news of the arrest also comes at the same time as Garrett's alleged split with his longtime girlfriend Emma Roberts, with whom he shares a 1-year-old son.

The couple, who were first linked in March 2019, are said to have broken up sometime earlier this year, which has "been hard" on both Emma and Garrett.

The former couple have not yet released a statement about their split.
