*The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department and its notorious leader Joe Arpaio had a field day with the Super Bowl in town.
According to law enforcement sources … Paulk got pinched early Sunday morning by Maricopa County Sheriff’s deputies, and blew a .109. He also allegedly had a bag of marijuana.
Paulk was pulled over in Scottsdale for driving dangerously close to emergency vehicles involved in a routine stop. Cops say he failed a field sobriety test … and fessed up he’d been drinking Hennessy and smoking pot earlier in the day.
It’s not Paulk’s first legal tangle — the actor was arrested in 2013 for allegedly kicking and punching his ex-GF, but avoided jail time after cutting a plea deal.
