The 40-year-old actor, who lives in Lytham, Lancashire, was arrested outside Lytham House pub on Henry Street in the coastal city at around 10pm on Wednesday.

Lancashire Police said in a statement this morning: ‘A 40-year-old man from Lytham was arrested on Henry Street in the city shortly after 10pm on Wednesday 25 August on suspicion of being drunk and agitated.

“They were later given a penalty warning for the chaos (£90).”

A Lytham House spokesperson declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.

In 2016, Armstrong was arrested after an incident at the Mount Royal Hotel, in York, in the early hours of the morning. At the time, this was the third alcohol-related conviction of the actor.

He allegedly rowed with the hotel’s night porter, a man in his 60s, who claimed he was assaulted by the actor.

Armstrong was filming in York alongside Joan Frogget of Downton Abbey for the television mini-series Dark Angel at the time of his arrest. Armstrong had to pay his victim £345 in compensation.

He ordered 80 hours of unpaid work for the community and a 10-hour rehabilitation with probation service.

But Blackpool judges overturned the sentence after they were told he had already done unpaid work as a gardener and lawnmower. They were also assured that he had sought help from a counselor to drink it.

According to the monitoring service, Armstrong “accepted that he had a drinking problem” and took steps to deal with it, including working with Inspire to address his alcohol abuse.
