“Reservoir Dogs” actor Michael Madsen has a really bad booze problem that needs immediate attention — so says the judge in his DUI case … who just ordered Madsen to check in to a live-in alcohol treatment facility.
Madsen appeared in court in Malibu today sporting a nasty black eye. It”s unclear how he got the shiner … but the actor has bigger problems.
The actor had been ordered to appear in court today after the judge revoked his probation stemming from his 2012 arrest … when he was popped on PCH in a gleaming red hot rod with a blood alcohol level over twice the legal limit (allegedly).
Madsen had struck a plea deal in the case, in which he agreed to attend AA classes — but we”re told he blew them off, so the judge revoked his probation.
Today … the judge decided he needed some extra help with his alcohol problem … and ordered him to enroll in a residential treatment facility for at least 30 days.
The judge ordered Madsen not to leave the facility without court approval — and said the court would reevaluate the situation after the 30-day period based on a progress report from the facility.
Madsen was ordered to check in to the program within 72 hours.
