The actor, best known for playing Father Gabriel on the AMC series, was clocked going 107 mph, police claim.

The Walking Dead star Seth Gilliam was arrested Sunday morning in Peachtree City, Ga., The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. 

According to the police report, the actor, who plays a priest named Gabriel on the hit AMC series, was pulled over just after 2 a.m. when an officer clocked him going 107 mph in a 55 mph zone. 

The officer claims he smelled booze and asked Gilliam if he had been drinking. Gilliam allegedly admitted to having had three beers and a shot, and registered a 0.107 blood-alcohol level. According to the report, the officer also detected the smell of marijuana and found a joint in the actor's car. 

Gilliam, who has recurred on The Good Wife and Teen Wolf and appeared in the 2014 film Still Alice, was charged with speeding, reckless driving, DUI and possession of less than an ounce of marijuana. He was booked and released. 

Production on season six of The Walking Dead began this week in Atlanta. AMC declined to comment on whether Gilliam's arrest will impact production on the new season of the zombie drama.
