WINDSOR, Ontario (AP) -- A Canada casino says a performance by U.S. comic George Lopez will go on as scheduled Friday after he was arrested for alleged public intoxication.

Ceasars Windsor spokeswoman Jhoan Baluyot says the show is continuing as planned.

Provincial police say officers stationed at the casino in Ontario 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.

Lopez says in a statement via his publicist, Ina Treciokas: "Tied one on last night. Not feeling great this morning. I was trying to sleep it off, unfortunately, it was on the casino floor."
