According to TMZ.com:

 

WWE Legend Rowdy Roddy Piper has been arrested for suspicion DUI last night in Hollywood, Calif.

Piper (real name: Roderick Toombs) was stopped by police around 1 a.m. and given field sobriety test. He was then arrested.

As of 12 p.m. Pacific time, Piper is still being held in jail. Bail was set for $5,000

Any more news will be forthcoming. Not sure why Piper was in L.A.

Perhaps to attend Michael Jackson's funeral or something.

No word yet if anyone heard bagpipes while he was taking the sobriety test.
