Jared Padalecki was arrested for public intoxication and assault but the shooting for the final season of Supernatural is said to be going ahead as planned...for now!
The CW star Jared Padalecki who found fame with the series 'Supernatural' on the channel was arrested in his hometown of Austin, Texas, after an altercation with the bartender, a manager, and his friend who tried to calm him down.
Jared was in Vancouver filming the show, and seemingly he was off from filming duty for a while, and he was in his hometown when going for a bar he frequents turned into quite the night for the actor. This place was said to be somewhere he often frequents, which makes it amazing why the confrontation even took place in the first place, considering he probably knew everyone working there.

In a video of the incident obtained by TMZ, the actor is seen putting a man in a headlock; he was said to be the actor’s friend who was trying to calm him down. Then from another angle, it is apparent the actor is severely intoxicated because he cannot stand on his own two feet without the help of a car against which he was leaning.
The police can be seen after a while where they seem to be talking to the 'Sam Winchester' actor. Then, in the video, the actor is seen pulling something out of his pocket, an eyewitness said it was a wad of cash. After a while, the actor was put inside the cop car and taken away, and he was later charged with assault (two counts) and public intoxication (one count).

According to the eyewitnesses at the bar, the actor hit the bartender in the face, and he also hit the manager of the bar in the face, according to the reports. The establishment called 'Stereotype' was a frequent destination for the actor, and some even said the actor practically owned the place, which can be possible considering he promotes the place on his Instagram and was there during the opening night.
The actor’s bail amount was set at $15,000 with $5,000 for each count the police are charging him with. There is confirmation whether he posted bail or not, but according to reports, the actor’s commitment for the final season of 'Supernatural' is not changing as of now. He is expected to report for shooting until the time the court hears his case and passes a verdict.
