Reps for Roberts, 30, and Hedlund did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment at the time.

Roberts and Hedlund, who began dating in March 2019, welcomed Rhodes in December 2020. The former couple then shared the baby's first photo and his name in January. "Thank you 2020 for getting one thing right," Roberts wrote at the time. "Our bright light Rhodes Robert Hedlund."

A source previously told PEOPLE that Hedlund "totally stepped it up" to support the new mom after Roberts welcomed their son in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Having a newborn in the pandemic has been a lot harder than either of them expected, but they're really, really trying their best to figure things out," the source said. "Garrett totally stepped it up after Emma was still recovering after giving birth."

Added the insider: "He made sure that their house was stocked with things that Emma liked and needed so she felt comfortable. She's just starting to get back into a more 'normal' routine."

Hedlund's weekend arrest isn't the only legal trouble that the Troy and Friday Night Lights star is currently facing.

Earlier this week, the actor was sued two years after his DUI charge. According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, Hedlund is being sued for negligence by a mother and daughter who allege they were "severely" injured in a "horrible head-on crash" after Hedlund's blood alcohol level tested at .36 percent, four times the legal limit of .08.

The two are asking for punitive damages and a jury trial. Besides the mother and daughter, there were also two minors in the car at the time of the incident.

Hedlund was arrested on Jan. 24, 2020, and released on bail with a court date set for Feb. 25, according to previous court documents obtained by PEOPLE. The Triple Frontier actor later pleaded no contest to one count and was found guilty, while the second DUI charge was dismissed.

After the incident, the Tron actor sought and completed a 30-day residential treatment program and a 9-month, first-offender alcohol and drug education counseling program. Hedlund initiated and volunteered for the residential treatment after his arrest.
