As reported by Time, the child star of 1982 smash sci-fi movie ET The Extra-Terrestrial was allegedly arrested and charged for Drink Driving in Oregon on Monday.

Henry Thomas, who played ET's best friend Elliot in the Steven Spielberg directed masterpiece, was reportedly found in a stationary car before being asked to perform a sobriety test.

Elliot reportedly failed the sobriety test and was taken into custody at Washington County Jail.

The court date and blood alcohol concentration were not disclosed.

Henry Thomas has since starred in a number of Hollywood films, including Legends of the Fall and Gangs of New York.

In Queensland, readings of 0.099 and below constitute low range drink driving, which for a first time offence carries a licence disqualification range of 1-9 months and in certain circumstances the driver will be eligible to apply for a drink driving work licence, which permits them to continue driving for work purposes during their disqualification period.

With a previous conviction within the last 5 years, which is not suggested is the case with Mr Thomas, the penalty range, depending upon the previous reading, ranges from 3-18 months if the previous was low or mid range, through to a 6 month to lifetime loss of licence where the previous was a high range offence (a reading of 0.150 or above).
