Josh Brolin arrested on New Year's Day

Josh Brolin's list of New Year's resolutions might include avoiding any more arrests.

The 44-year-old actor was picked up by Santa Monica, California, police just before midnight on January 1 and booked on a misdemeanor charge of public intoxication around 3 a.m. the next day, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

He was  released at about 7:15 a.m.

Brolin's rep declined to comment.

TMZ notes that since Brolin wasn't given a citation, he can wash his hands of the incident rather than having to go to court.

Funnily enough, the actor plays a Los Angeles-based police officer in his latest project, "Gangster Squad," which opens in theaters Friday.

    Oh goodness. Public intoxication is such a silly charge, by itself. If you've been drinking at a bar or party or restaurant and had more than a taste, you are likely to be intoxicated (legally) and in public. What do they want: people to drink by themselves at home? haha

    He was drunk on New Year's Eve and got arrested, wow! How many others were in the cell with him. This is NOT news. This is publicity for an upcoming film.

    Another typical Hollywood liberal who thinks he is above the law. Typical of the party of hate.
