Christopher McDonald Mugshot

You know Shooter McGavin from Adam Sandler’s “Happy Gilmore,” right?

Well, the actor who played him, Christopher McDonald, was just arrested for a DWI.

A Hollywood star was arrested for DWI in Hollywood East early this morning, according to deputies at the New Hanover County Jail. Christopher McDonald was arrested by a trooper on 3rd Street in downtown Wilmington. Deputies say he was booked in the jail just after 4:30 a.m. under a $1,000 unsecured bond. You may remember him as Shooter McGavin alongside Adam Sandler in the 1996 movie “Happy Gilmore.” According to the “Wilmywood Daily,” McDonald is in Wilmington filming a new movie called “The Squeeze.” In an article posted on, McDonald just got to the Port City Monday to begin production on the film.

I guess Shooter is still pissed at Happy and let it ruin his life. Sad. Sometimes the happy ending to the movie isn’t the end in real life, and shit gets real sad.
