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.

Police stopped a black 2020 Dodge Challenger with the tail-lights off on the shoulder of Highway 290 in Manor, Texas, at around 1:30am, and identified Passage as the driver, according to Fox 7

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. 

Both star in the 2020 true crime documentary Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness. 

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.
