Drake Bell Charged with DUI Following December Arrest
Singer and former Nickelodeon star Drake Bell has been charged following his December arrest on suspicion of DUI, PEOPLE has confirmed.
Bell has been charged with a misdemeanor, which carries a maximum sentence of one year in county jail, Los Angeles District Attorney’s office spokesperson Ricardo Santiago tells PEOPLE.
A Glendale police spokesperson previously told PEOPLE that Bell was pulled over Dec. 21 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,” spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot told PEOPLE.
Bell, 29, was arrested and released after posting $20,000 in bail.
A rep for Bell did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
