Former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell was arrested early Monday on suspicion of DUI in Glendale, California, PEOPLE confirms.

According to Glendale Police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot, the actor 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.

Officers “smelled an odor of alcohol” and administered a sobriety test, which Bell “did not satisfactorily complete,” adds Lightfoot.

Bell – who was traveling alone, says Lightfoot – was placed under arrest and was released on a citation after posting $20,000 in bail.

A manager for Bell, 29, has not returned a request for comment.
