Tiger King star Joe Exotic’s husband Dillon Passage ‘arrested for drunk driving’

Joe Exotic’s husband Dillon Passage has been arrested for drunk driving, it’s claimed.
The Tiger King star, 25, was stopped by police while driving in Travis County, Texas, at just after 3am on Sunday morning, TMZ reports.
Passage, who tied the knot with Netflix star Exotic, 57, in 2017, failed his field sobriety test and was then handcuffed and taken to jail, the site said.
He was reportedly booked at just after 5:30 AM for misdemeanor Driving While Intoxicated.
The Travis County Sheriff’s department’s website lists Passage as an inmate in Travis County Jail held under charges of driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest, search or transport.
The reality TV star had posted a video of himself partying at an event held on Saturday night to his Instagram stories.
Exotic told TMZ: “I’ve tried my hardest to get him to quit drinking, I love him.”
Dillon is currently behind bars so could not give comment to the site.
Passage and Exotic married in July 2017, just two months after Exotic’s husband Travis Maldonado, fatally shot himself accidentally.
Exotic is currently serving a 22-year sentence after being found guilty of a murder-for-hire plot against his rival Carole Baskin, 58.
He has asked President Trump for either a commutation of his sentence or an outright pardon.
Exotic found fame in Netflix series Tiger King, which became hugely popular at the start of the coronavirus lockdown.
The show depicted the rise and fall of his tiger zoo and ended with him being imprisoned.
