Fayette County, Ga.'s Sheriff’s Office

It hasn’t been a good week so far for actors who appeared in both The Walking Dead and The Wire. First Chad L. Coleman had a meltdown on the New York City subway and apologized, and now another actor from both series is in hot water with the law.

Seth K. Gilliam, 46, who plays Father Gabriel on The Walking Dead and was Ellis Carver on The Wire, was arrested in Atlanta over the weekend after he was pulled over for speeding.


According to MyFox Atlanta, after the traffic stop, in which he was clocked at over 100 miles per hour, police issued a Breathalyzer test. Gilliam had a blood alcohol content of .107, and on top of that, marijuana was found in his car.

Gilliam was charged with speeding, reckless driving, DUI and marijuana possession. He was arrested but was released after posting a $9,818 bond.
