Bronson Pelletier who appears in the "Twilight" films has been caught on video while drunk in an airport recently.

According to reports, the actor could face a misdemeanor charge due to his inebriation.

While drunk, the Pelletier was charged with public intoxication after he urinated on the carpet in the Los Angeles International airport on Monday of last week, according to TMZ.

Authorities had removed Pelletier from a flight for being too drunk moments before and a member of staff was trying to calm the actor. Just then, he unzipped his jeans to relieve himself.

In the footage posted to the gossip website, an airport employee approaches the stumbling actor before matters worsen and police arrive.

The 26-year-old actor must appear in court on Jan. 7, according to the U.K.'s The Sun, and could face up to six months in jail for the incident.

Meanwhile, the actor, who portrays Jared among the wolf pack in the "Twilight" series, previously denied the urinating incident.

As of today though, Pelletier's spokesperson said his client had "issues" and that the actor will be seeking treatment, reported The Sun.

Adding to his troubles, Pelletier was previously arrested for possession of both cocaine and methamphetamines in December.

Law enforcement sources said the Canadian actor was arrested Dec. 8 in West Hollywood at the Gym Bar, according to TMZ.

The insider noted that the Pelletier appeared "wasted" and refused to leave when the bar's staff called the police.

Furthermore, eyewitnesses told TMZ that the actor was going from person to person making everyone feel "uncomfortable."

Pelletier, who is of Plains Cree descent, appears in the latest of the hit films, "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2," and just finished filming the movie "Fishing Naked."

An unverified account on Twitter with the name Bronson Pelletier addressed the recent legal entanglements.

Although it is unclear if the posts were actually written by the actor, the account reads, "Just to confirm I have never done meth. I was arrested for being drunk in public. How a story of meth came to be I have no idea."
