Christopher McDonald jailed for DUI, reminds cops he’s famous

That’s two thus far, Shooter.

Actor Christopher McDonald, 62, got busted driving while intoxicated after running his silver Porsche off the road Saturday night, TMZ reports.

The “Happy Gilmore” star lost control of his vehicle, hit a gas meter and veered into an embankment after having too many drinks near San Bernadino, Calif.

According to a witness, McDonald tried to tell the cops he was in “Happy Gilmore,” but they still tossed the star in jail.

Sheriff’s department records show McDonald was cited for DUI and released from custody at 10:13 a.m. Sunday.

McDonald was previously arrested for a DWI in Wilmington, N.C. in 2013, having tested for twice the legal limit of alcohol.

He starred as a rival golfer in 1996’s “Happy Gilmore” opposite Adam Sandler.

McDonald channeled his inner McGavin on TMZ back in July, saying infamously troubled golfer Tiger Woods would overcome his own DUI as he did.
