‘Drake and Josh’ actor Drake Bell arrested for alleged drink driving

Bell was pulled over on suspicion of DUI in California on Monday (December 21)

Actor Drake Bell has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

The star, best known for his early role in Nickelodeon kids show Drake and Josh, was arrested early Monday morning (December 21) on suspicion of DUI, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Bell, who now pursues a music career, was pulled over by police in Glendale, California at around 2am local time. Police report that Bell’s car was speeding and swerving, and that he later failed a sobriety test.

Bell’s mugshot has since been released (see below).

Bell released his latest album ‘Ready Steady Go!’ in 2014. Earlier this year, he feared that he would never be able to play guitar again when breaking his wrist after jumping into the shallow end of a swimming pool.

Bell also made headlines over the summer after tweeting that he would still call Caitlyn Jenner “Bruce” after the star transitioned from male to female. Bell later apologised, describing his comments as “thoughtless [and] insensitive”.
