Henry Thomas, best known as Elliott in “E.T. the Extra Terrestrial,” was arrested Tuesday for allegedly driving under the influence.

The Tualatin Police Department said they received a call reporting a stationary vehicle on the road in Tualatin, Oregon.

Thomas was found in the car and the 48-year-old was taken to Washington County Jail on a misdemeanour DUI charge.

He was released on his own recognisance Tuesday morning.
