If you were a child during the 2000s, chances are you grew up watching classic Nickelodeon shows like “Rugrats”, “Hey Arnold!“, and “Drake & Josh”.

Best known for his role as Drake Parker in “Drake & Josh”, former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) early Monday (21st December) in Glendale, California.

The Los Angeles Times first reported the incident.


Glendale Police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot said that Bell, who had been driving alone, was pulled over by police around 2:20am after being spotted “swerving, speeding, and abruptly stopping at a red light”. She also said that the officer who pulled Bell over smelled alcohol from the 29-year-old actor-musician’s car. The officer administered a sobriety test, which Bell failed.

According to People Magazine, the singer was later released with a citation after posting a USD20,000 bail. No further details have been released and Bell had not commented on the arrest.

Career wise, Bell is currently prepping for an almost-sold-out concert tour in Mexico, which begins on 5th February 2016. He has also been busy with his voice-over work on the Disney XD animated series, “Ultimate Spider-Man”.

However, it is unclear whether his most recent run-in will affect his upcoming tour.
