Supernatural fans react to Jared Padalecki’s arrest 1

Supernatural star Jared Padalecki was taken into police custody early Sunday morning in Austin, Texas.

Padalecki, who plays the role of Sam Winchester in the long-running CW series, was arrested by cops outside the club called Stereotype. According to a report by TMZ, the Austin native is facing two counts of assault and one count of public intoxication.

Onlookers on the scene told TMZ that Padalecki allegedly struck a bartender in the face inside the establishment. In an attempt to calm Padalecki down, a friend took him outside the club. But a standoff between the two took place with the actor giving his pal a headlock.

Eyewitnesses also told TMZ that Padalecki got into a fight with the general manager of Stereotype, and allegedly hit him in the face as well. Ultimately, Padalecki was restrained by the police but not before pulling out and flashing what appeared to be a roll of cash to the officers.

One of the videos obtained by TMZ shows the alleged standoff between Padalecki and his friend outside the bar. Another clip, meanwhile, captures the moment Padalecki pulled out what seemed to be some cash from his pockets.

Padelecki’s total bond is set at $15,000, but it’s unclear if he has bailed out yet.

As expected, several Supernatural fans have sent their love for the actor since the news of his arrest broke.


While some fans are simply concerned about how Padalecki’s doing after the incident, a number of loyal Padalecki fans are trying to defend the actor’s misbehavior.




A few people on Twitter, meanwhile, are not really surprised by Padaleki’s recent brush with the law. And others don’t really think it’s that big of a deal.


For some reason, there are also some Twitter users that see Padalecki’s arrest as something funny.

Supernatural is currently in the middle of filming its fifteenth and final season, and it’s not clear whether Padalecki’s arrest would impact the production of the show.

Supernatural airs on Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
