WINDSOR, Ont. - A casino in southwestern Ontario says a performance by George Lopez will go on as scheduled Friday night after the U.S. comic was arrested for public intoxication.

Ceasars Windsor spokeswoman Jhoan (JOANNE) Baluyot says Lopez's comedy show is continuing as planned.

A photo posted on Twitter appears to show Lopez passed out on the floor of the casino late Thursday night.

Provincial police say officers stationed at the casino arrested Lopez for allegedly being intoxicated in a public place, then turned him over to local police.

Windsor police say only that a man was arrested at the casino but later released with no charges laid.
