Drake Bell (born Jared Drake Bell), singer and star of the hit Nickelodeon show, “Drake & Josh,” was arrested early Monday morning in Glendale, California on suspicion of driving under the influence.
Bell, 29, was stopped by police around 2:20 a.m. after they claimed they witnessed him driving erratically, according the Los Angles Times. Glendale Police spokeswoman, Tahnee Lightfoot, says that Bell was “swerving and speeding after abruptly stopping at a red light.”
Lightfoot also says that the officer that pulled Bell from his car claimed to smell alcohol coming from the car. Bell was given a field sobriety test that he reportedly failed.
No further information was given on the arrest however, Bell was given a citation and the local authorities will be presenting the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office when the investigation is completed.
Bell recently announced that he will be doing a tour in Mexico beginning February 5, 2016. Hopefully his arrest won’t cause any issue with his upcoming tour.
