Another character from “The Walking Dead” cast has been arrested.

Seth Gilliam — who plays Father Gabriel, a priest terrorized by zombies in the apocalyptic drama — was drunk and driving almost double the speed limit on Georgia Highway 74 in the Peachtree City area when authorities stopped him early Monday morning.

“The driver applied the brakes prior to passing my vehicle and was still traveling at 107 mph,” the Peachtree City police officer who pulled Gilliam over wrote in his report.

Gilliam told officers he had only had three beers and a shot, but when they smelled marijuana they looked and found a joint in a cigarette pack inside the actor’s car. Gilliam faces charges of speeding, reckless driving, drug possession and drunken driving.

He’s only the latest of actors from the AMC show to be arrested.

Scott Wilson, who played a farmer and recovering alcoholic, was driving drunk the same area when he was pulled over, and asked the arresting officer if he could do “yoga poses instead of a field sobriety test.” Shannon Richardson, who played a zombie, is doing 18 years in prison right now after she sent ricin-tainted letters to Barack Obama and Michael Bloomberg(RELATED: Meet ‘The Walking Dead’ Actress Who Mailed Ricin To Obama Gets 18 Years In Prison)
