Washington, Oct 29 : Hollywood actor Justin Long, who's well known as Drew Barrymore's ex-boyfriend, has revealed that he was once arrested in the middle of the night by cops who mistook him for an Asian criminal.
The Hollywood hunk was only released when he convinced the officers he wasn't the man they were looking for.
"There was banging on the door at one in the morning. I woke up and opened the door and there were three police officers on my doorstep. They grabbed me, put me in handcuffs and arrested me," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
"They were shining a light back and forth from my face to an ID.
"After I told them what my name was, they said, 'So you're saying this isn't you?' and turned the picture around. And it was a mugshot of a fully Asian dude," he added.
At the time, Long was living in the Santa Monica pad with actor pal Jonah Hill, who frequently mocks him about the incident.
Long added, "Every time I'm with Jonah and we see somebody Asian, he'll say, 'That's your brother or sister.'"
