Actor Ryan Rottman, who the Daily News says is probably best known for his role on the show Gigantic, has become first known to us as being the dude who got busted by the LAPD for drinking and driving in Hollywood Thursday night. Rottman, 26, was reportedly enjoying a night out with pals Zac Efron and Rumer Willis at Dillon's Irish Pub, marking the first time we've heard of anyone actually going to Dillon's Irish Pub. Good on ya, Ryan!According to TMZ, Rottman "jumped the curb as he was driving in Hollywood," after leaving the bar. The LAPD saw the whole thing, and when they smelled the booze on him, they gave him a field sobriety test. "Rottman blew a .19 ... well over twice the legal limit."

He was arrested on suspicion of a DUI, booked, and released.

Today TMZ wonders if pal Efron said anything to Rottman about not driving after all that drinking. Apparently Efron has not responded yet to the inquiry.
