‘Walking Dead’ actor accused of drunken driving, drug charge

ATLANTA (AP) — An actor who plays a priest on the AMC drama “The Walking Dead” is facing drunken driving and drug charges after police say he was clocked going 107 mph on a Georgia highway.

Police say 46-year-old Seth Gilliam was stopped shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday on Georgia Highway 74 in the Peachtree City area, not far from the set where much of the TV show is filmed in nearby Senoia.

A police report says that Gilliam told the officer he had three beers and a shot of alcohol. Police say they found a marijuana joint inside the vehicle.

Two representatives for the actor didn’t immediately return phone calls from The Associated Press.

Gilliam faces speeding, reckless driving, drug possession and drunken driving charges.
