We'd just finished (filming) I think four hours before and had a couple of drinks."Jeffrey got into something with the bartender. Suddenly he told me, 'I think they're calling the cops.' I went to the bathroom. When I came out of the bathroom, he was being escorted out. All I wanted to know was where (they were) taking him."I met him outside. I remember thinking, 'Mace is bouncing off my eyeballs. This is unbelievable.' A lot of people got arrested for asking questions."There was no fight. I've spent a lot of time in Texas myself, a lot of time in the South. I've never seen anything this extreme. I've never seen it escalate so quickly."Brolin and Wright are due in court in December on charges of interfering with police.
