The 37-year-old actor was arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning outside Stereotype, a club in Austin, Texas, TMZ reports.
According to the website, Padalecki faces two counts of assault and one count of public intoxication, after allegedly striking both a bartender and the club’s general manager in the face.
Padalecki, who plays Sam Winchester in Supernatural, can be seen putting someone into a headlock outside the club before being put into a cop car, video obtained by TMZ appears to show.
He allegedly flashed a wad of cash at police officers, too.
The star’s bond has been set at $15,000, $5,000 per charge, according to reports, though it’s unclear whether or not Padalecki has yet been bailed out.
Padalecki is said to be a regular at Stereotype, having previously posted about the grand opening of the 90s-themed club in September 2018.
According to Stereotype’s Facebook page, the club is, “Studio 54 meets the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Saved by the Bell with a nod to Rubell,”
“A chance to relive high school, but with infinitely more style.
“Stereotype is a music-centric concept, featuring rotating DJs – including dedicated vinyl DJ sets – video DJs sets and live music.
“Stereotype blends sophistication with retro and nineties flair to create an infinitely entertaining and approachable bacchanal scene.”
Padalecki, a texan native, costars alongside Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins in Supernatural, which debuted in 2005.
Earlier this year he announced the show would end following its fifteenth season.
Speaking to Us Weekly in May, an emotional Padalecki said of his character: “I feel like I’ll never really say goodbye to him.
“We really have become a family.
“Over 15 years, we’ve cut the fat.
“We didn’t fire anybody but if they didn’t like being there, they move on. So the people that are there want to be there.”
Padalecki is married to Genevieve Cortese, who costars alongside him in the show, and the couple have three children.
