Former teen star Drake Bell has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

TMZ broke the news Monday night, reporting that the 29-year-old former Nickelodeon star was pulled over at around 2 a.m. in Glendale, California after an officer allegedly saw him swerving and speeding after abruptly stopping at a red light.

Drake Bell was reportedly driving at 55mph in a 35mph zone, and following a failed an on-site sobriety test, the actor was locked up for 10 hours before posting a $20,000 bail.

The Nickelodeon star is best remembered for his role on the hit TV show Drake & Josh. The show ran from 2004-2007 and enjoyed a healthy four seasons, before departing from our screens. Something that many fans are still not over, with calls still being made by fans almost a decade later for a return to the sitcom.

Since Drake & Josh finished, Drake Bell has remained active within the creative industries. Drake sang the catchy theme tune for the show, leading him to launching a music career as well as enjoying roles in Ultimate Spider-Man, Hulk and Agents Of SMASH.

However, he may best be known recently for his twitter antics. The actor seems to not be a fan of the Biebs, and has publicly tweeted his disdain for the singer on multiple occasions...

Which makes this tweet of him poking fun at the popstars DUI all the more ironic...


Unfortunately, a return to the beloved Drake & Josh sitcom seems unlikely, but if you want to catch Drake Bell in the upcoming future, you can check him out in TV series Suspense and kids movie Cozmo's. To keep up with his other projects, check out his IMDb page.
