According to TMZ, Mitchel Musso, who starred as Oliver Oken on “Hannah Montana”, was arrested for drunk driving in Burbank, CA, yesterday.
TMZ states that law enforcement pulled over Musso, who is only twenty-years-old, at nearly 4AM. He had failed to slow down for officers that were directing traffic for another, unrelated incident. He was given a sobriety test and performed poorly. He was arrested on suspicion of DUI and was taken to a nearby police station, where his bail was set to $5,000.
Musso also stars on “Pair of Kings” and “PrankStars” on the Disney Channel.
Musso isn’t the first Disney Channel star to land himself in trouble. Not too long ago footage of Miley Cyrus surfaced where she is seen taking hits of salvia from a bong. Demi Lovato checked herself into rehab after having a physical altercation with one of her backup dancers. And, of course, no one can forget Lindsay Lohan and her string of problems.
Musso is Mason Musso’s brother, who was a member of the electro-pop group Metro Station before they announced an indefinite hiatus, headed by Trace Cyrus, Miley Cyrus’ half-brother.
Parents, do you think that Disney Channel stars are a terrible influence on your children? Or do you think that the small number of stars in trouble won’t outweigh the “good” Disney Channel stars? Let me know in the comments below.
