Actor Henry Thomas, known for his role as 10-year-old Elliott in 'E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial', allegedly tampered with his urine sample and threatened an officer after he was arrested for a DUI in Oregon. 

The Tualatin Police Department first arrested Thomas in October when they found the 48-year-old actor passed out behind the wheel in the middle of residential intersection near his Portland home.

When Officer Jessica Lemieux attempted to administer a breathalyzer test on Thomas, police reports say he repeatedly blocked the machine's mouthpiece while pretending to breathe.  

'Thomas was puffing his cheeks and his face would get red but there would not be a lot of breath coming out,' Lemieux said in a police report. 

Thomas was placed in a holding cell and asked to provide a urine sample for authorities. 

He reportedly returned the test container with clear, cool liquid filled up to the brim that officers believe was toilet water.

Thomas also allegedly threatened the rookie cop transporting him to the hospital for a blood test.

'I hope the city has a lot of money. I am going to make sure you are fired.' Thomas reportedly told Lemieux.
