Sons Of Anarchy actor Paul Vasquez was briefly detained by police in his native San Jose, California on Monday (14Oct13) aftER allegedly refusing to settle a $56 (£37) bar tab.

The Tv star, who has also appeared in Csi: Ny and Er, was reportedly drunk when he tried to leave the venue without paying his bill, prompting bar bosses to report him to cops.

Officers arrived on the scene and placed him under custody until Vasquez's dad was able to bail him out by handing over the cash before taking him home, according to Tmz.com.

Representatives for the 43 year old have yet to comment on the incident.
