SANTA MONICA, Calif. (CBS/AP) Like father, like son.
Santa Monica police say Brawley Nolte, actor Nick Nolte's son, has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of a controlled substance.
Sgt. Jay Trisler says Brawley Nolte, 23, was driving north on the Pacific Coast Highway Tuesday afternoon when he made a lane change and struck a vehicle in front of him.
Officers called to the scene believed Brawley Nolte had been driving while impaired. Trisler says he was arrested following a series of sobriety tests.
Trisler did not know whether Brawley Nolte had an attorney. He was freed after posting $5,000 bail.
Brawley Nolte portrayed Mel Gibson's kidnapped son in the 1996 film "Ransom."
Nick Nolte pleaded no contest in 2002 to a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence of drugs.
