TMZ was the first to report.

He was allegedly booked at Ventura County Jail at 5:15 P.M. local time. The “Anchorman” star remained there until the next morning as he was released at 5:49 A.M.

That aside, David went through a major heartbreak last year as he split from his wife Leigh Koechner after nearly of 22 years of marriage. According to court documents obtained by Page Six in last January, the 57-year-old actor filed a petition for dissolution of marriage with minor children in California.

On the same day when the news of the divorce broke out, Leigh took to Twitter to announce that she’d be launching a webinar about the different stages of divorce and “how to navigate them back to love, back to happiness.” The “Messy Imperfect Life With Leigh” podcast host wrote at the time, “Divorce sucks, but we don’t have to suffer.”
