Comedian George Lopez was reportedly found passed out on the floor of a Canadian casino and as a result, was arrested by police and spent the night sobering up, TMZ reported.

Arrested for public intoxication at Caesars Windsor, Lopez apparently sobered up and was released, TMZ said. He isn’t facing any charges.

A Caesars Windsor spokesperson wouldn’t confirm the incident or comment on what happened, but told Michigan Live that Lopez would perform there Friday night. He also performed Thursday night.

TMZ also posted a photo of Lopez on the floor, his shirt riding up.

The comedian’s situation pulled in online comments, including allusions to the fact that his ex-wife gave him a kidney. George and Ann Lopez announced their divorce in 2010 after 17 years of marriage.

Ann Lopez donated one of her kidneys to Lopez after he was diagnosed with a genetic condition that affected his kidneys, causing deterioration, Radar Online said.

“Glad he is taking care of his body after his wife gave him her kidney,” one person wrote on the TMZ story.

A little ironically, Lopez tweeted Thursday about a kidney public service announcement he made:
