On early Monday, the former Nickelodeon star, Drake Bell, was arrested on the suspicion of driving under the influence in Glendale, California. According to Glendale Police spokeswoman, Tahnee Lightfoot, Bell was pulled over at 2:18 a.m. by police for straddling a lane, traveling at an unsafe speed and abruptly stopping at a red light.
The police officers “smelled an odor of alcohol” and administered a sobriety test. Bell “did not satisfactorily complete” the test.
According to Lightfoot, Bell was traveling alone during the incident. He was placed under arrest and was released on a citation after posting $20,000 in bail. The court date has yet to be set.
Drake Bell is best known for his work on The Amanda Show and Drake & Josh. He recently came under fire for his comments about Caitlyn Jenner’s transition this year. Hopefully 2016 treats Drake Bell better than 2015 did.
