The arrest of the 29-year-old actor, singer and former Nickelodeon star has made headlines all over the world. Now the booking photo (above) is being hotly searched and, it’s gone viral even as few details have emerged on the alleged incident that has suddenly put him in the news in the midst of Christmas week.
According to the L.A. Times — which was the first to break the story — quoting a Glendale Police spokesperson, Drake Bell was arrested in Glendale, California. At approximately 2:20 a.m. police pulled him over when he was reportedly seen serving, speeding and stopping abruptly at a red light. Police smelled alcohol coming from his car. He also is reported to have failed a field sobriety test.
TMZ reports that he was traveling 55mph in a 35mph zone and pegs the amount of time he spent locked up at nearly 10 hours, and that he was released on $20,000 bail.
‘Drake & Josh,’ the Nickelodeon channel show that brought him and his costar Josh Peck fame premiered in 2004 and ended in 2007. He’ll next appear in a guest starring role on ‘Grandfathered’ on Fox alongside his former co-star. He has also been a voice actor in the Disney XD series ‘Ultimate Spider-Man vs. the Sinister 6′ as well as ‘Marvel’s Hulk and the Agents of SMASH.’
Also of late, he had had a longstanding feud with Justin Bieber and took to Twitter where he infamously mocked his DUI arrest in Miami last January. Thus far he has maintained social media silence on his arrest and numerous media outlets have been unable to reach a rep for comment.
