Actor-musician Drake Bell arrested on suspicion of DUI in Glendale


Actor and musician Jared Drake Bell was arrested Monday on suspicion of driving under the influence in Glendale, police said.

At around 2:20 a.m., Bell, 29, was stopped at West Doran Street and San Fernando Road after police reportedly saw him swerving and speeding after abruptly stopping at a red light, said Glendale Police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot.

During the traffic stop, the officer noticed the odor of alcohol coming from the car, after which Bell reportedly failed a field sobriety test, Lightfoot said.

The actor is best known for his starring role on Nickelodeon’s “Drake & Josh,” which follows the lives of two teens who become stepbrothers.
