Two people were arrested in California on Thursday after allegedly setting up actor Gary Busey for a drink driving bust and taking pictures of the encounter.
Police officers stopped the Lethal Weapon star in Malibu after receiving a tip-off by people claiming to be concerned witnesses.

Cops determined Busey “was perfectly sober” and allowed him to go on his way – before noticing Patrice Karst and Mark Abel taking pictures of the scene.

Deputies tell Karst and Abel identified themselves as members of the press and refused to stop taking photos despite their requests.

The L.A. County Sheriff’s officers arrested the pair for obstructing a peace officer in his duties.

Patrice was also charged with possession of marijuana.
