David Koechner Of “The Office” Was Arrested For DUI And A Hit And Run

January 3, 2022 / Posted by:

You may know David Koechner from his roles as Todd Packer in The Office or as Champ Kind in the Anchorman films. But cops in Simi Valley, California know him best as the guy they arrested for drunk driving and allegedly hitting a street sign on New Year’s Eve…. afternoon. Yep, dude was arrested for a DUI at 3:00 PM. Afternoon delight, indeed.

TMZ reports that police got a call about an erratic driver on Friday afternoon. They located the vehicle, and 59-year-old David was behind the wheel. He failed a field sobriety test and was arrested for DUI and allegedly hitting a street sign with his car. He was booked into Ventura County Jail around 5:00 PM, and his vehicle was towed. TMZ got their hands on David’s mugshot, and he does not look happy to be there:

David, who has five kids and is freshly divorced from his wife of over twenty years, was finally released at 5:00 the next morning, and his court date has been set for March 30. Awww, he missed the 2022 ball drop. Unless all the other boozers in the drunk tank counted down the New Year together? Hmmm, that sounds like a very depressing one-act play. 

On Sunday he was papped filling his car up with gas. It looks like there’s damage on the side of the vehicle, which is probably from hitting the sign (or maybe David just drives a busted car):

David’s two best-known roles are as dudes who love to party, so methinks the apple doth not fall too far from the tree. Unless there is an Office reboot on the way and David is already getting into character to play Todd Packer. David is probably hoping the judge is a fan.
