Irish actor Jonas Armstrong, known for starring in the titular role in the BBC One drama series Robin Hood, was arrested on August 25, on the suspicion of being drunk and conducting himself in a disorderly manner at a seaside resort. The 40-year-old actor was arrested on the premises of the Lytham House pub in the seaside town's Henry Street at around 10 p.m. He was later released after being fined £90 for disorder, the Lancashire Police said. Born in Dublin, Armstrong, who lives in Lytham, Lancashire, became popular after starring in BBC's Robin Hood, and landed roles in Tom Cruise's blockbuster sci-fi thriller Edge of Tomorrow,  including shows like the police series Line of Duty, Channel Four’s comedy show Teachers, and The Bay

Lancashire Police released a statement as follows; "A 40-year-old man from Lytham was arrested on Henry Street in the town shortly after 10pm on Wednesday, August 25 on suspicion of being drunk and disorderly. They were later given a penalty notice for disorder (£90)." Previously in 2016, Jonas Armstrong was arrested after an incident at the Mount Royale Hotel, in York, and was convicted for the third time after he had clashed with the night porter at the establishment. The actor had been shooting his portions for the TV mini series Dark Angel at the time alongside Downton Abbey's Joanne Froggatt. The Court had ordered him to do 80 hours unpaid work as part of the community service, including 10 hours rehabilitation with the probation service. However, the punishment was repealed by the Blackpool Magistrates after they were informed that the actor had already completed unpaid work as a gardener and grass cutter. An assurance was further given stating that he is getting help for his drinking issues from a counselor. The Probation Service said that Armstrong "accepted he has a drink problem" and is taking necessary steps to deal with the issue, including collaborating with the Inspire agency in order to sort out his misuse of alcohol
