After the news that Nick Nolte was arrested after swerving across the road in Malibu it now emerges that he has been admitted into a substance abuse and psychiatric centre in Conneticut.
The Cape Fear (1991) star was stopped by a police officer and given a blood test, and then taken into custody after failing to complete a breath test and later released on bail.
The police are saying that there is a strong possibility that Nolte had also taken drugs when he was arrested. He has battled with a drink problem for many years and was said to have given it up and turned to health and fitness instead.
Nolte is set to appear in a big screen version of the Incredible Hulk, (Hulk, The (2003)) next year and has recently been promoting his latest film The Good Thief.
