Report: Mickey Rourke Sounds Off on Vespa DUI Arrest

Actor Mickey Rourke is speaking out about his latest brush with the law during which he was charged with driving under the influence on his pastel-colored Vespa scooter, according to a report in the Palm Beach Post.

The Hollywood actor admitted to breaking the law, but — in describing the Miami Beach incident to the newspaper — denied he was drunk that November morning: "I did a left U-turn at a red light, but I wasn't drunk," he said.

Rourke has pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of reckless driving and will take an online driving course in addition to paying a fine, according to the Palm Beach Post.
