TIGER King star Dillon Passage was arrested for drunk driving on Sunday in Texas and apparently dropped his husband Joe Exotic’s name as cops detained him.
Passage, 25, made police “aware of his social status and marriage to famed Joe Maldonado-Passage on scene of the incident,” TMZ reported on Monday.
Maldonado-Passage, better known as Joe Exotic and the Tiger King, married Passage in December 2017.
When questioned by police, Passage said he thought he was in Belton, which is an hour north from his location.
When asked what time it was, Passage incorrectly said 7pm.
Passage had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and police detected alcohol in his breath.
He said his vehicle had suddenly stopped running and that he was waiting of this sister, and admitted to drinking three Modelo beers and being “maybe a bit intoxicated,” according to TMZ.
Passage failed a sobriety test and was arrested for DWI.
He is being held at Travis County Jail on a $3,000 bond.
Passage had posted a video on Instagram of himself at an event the prior night. https://www.the-sun.com/news/1810627/joe-exotic-husband-arrested-drunk-driving-tiger-king/
