It's not everyday you get to see Bono’s daughter Eve Hewson getting arrested.

But it was all in the line of duty for the Dublin actress as her dramatic arrest was part of filming for a new TV series she is taking part in, Emerald.

Eve (30) is pictured here at Sutton graveyard in north Co Dublin.

Her character is nabbed after being caught drinking out of a bottle of vodka and then vomiting.

Two 'gardai' lead her away, but in one of the images perhaps not meant for screening shows one of the guards clearly laughing at the antics.

Horgan said she was keen to film at the 40 Foot, famous for bathing on Dublin’s southside, “because of the history of the place … We knew it couldn’t be closed down, because it belongs to the public, so we thought, Let’s take our chances. But you forget that your footprint is rather wide and it’s very difficult to hide.”

Based on Clan, a Belgian series, it is the first result of Horgan’s deal with the American streaming service, which she signed in 2019.
