WINDSOR, Ontario, March 1 (UPI) -- Comedian George Lopez issued a statement to TMZ joking about his arrest for public intoxication at a Canadian casino Thursday night.

“Tied one on last night.  Not feeling great this morning. I was trying to sleep it off, unfortunately, it was on the casino floor," he said in the statement.
Lopez, 52, was arrested at Ontario's Caesars Windsor in Canada after he was found passed out on the floor in the hotel casino. He had performed a stand-up routine at the hotel earlier that night.

Lopez was snapped laying on the floor by a passerby.

No charges were filed, but he was taken into custody until he sobered up.

In an interview in 2005, Lopez said he no longer drinks after receiving a kidney transplant from his wife.,,20147885,00.html

"I have a total change of life. I'm done drinking alcohol and … maybe done smoking cigars, which I love. I'm not going to abuse my body. For the first time in my life, because of [my wife] Ann, I'm going to live the healthy life that I should have been living. Whatever happens to me professionally and wherever my golf swing goes, nothing is more important than the fact that my wife gave me a chance to live. I can't pay her back, but what I can do is make her as happy as she thought I would when we first got married," he said two months after his surgery.
