A Former Suite Life Star Arrested for Drunk Driving After Slamming Into Car
Up until this point, the most “controversial” headline surrounding Debby Ryan came when she admitted that she was a victim of domestic violence. While most of the other Suite Life actors have gotten wrapped up with scandalous activities in the past, the 22 year old always prided herself on staying out of trouble and being a positive role model for her young fans. Unfortunately, her plan to lay low following Jessie’s end has gone horribly wrong.
According to TMZ, the Disney Channel star was arrested last week for drunk driving. Cops were alerted of the blonde’s status when she crashed her Audi into a Mercedes and the car’s driver reported that he was injured. When police arrived at the scene of the accident, they gave her a field sobriety test and had her blow into a breathalyzer. While Debby was initially charged with a felony DUI for causing injury, the charges were bumped down to a misdemeanor because she blew a .11, which wasn’t that much over the legal limit of .08.
The Never Ending singer was officially charged with under the influence and driving with a .08 blood alcohol level or higher, but got out of jail after posting the $100,000 bail. Unfortunately, Debby now joins the ranks of other former Disney stars like Mitchell Musso, Shia LaBeouf, and Jake T. Austin who were all arrested for drinking and driving.
DR stayed quiet on the subject for quite some time, but shortly after the news broke she apologized to her fans on social media.
“Over the last few days I have had the chance to think about my actions, and I wish I had used better judgement. I recognize that I am a role model and have always worked hard to set a good example for my millions of fans. I am so sorry to disappoint everyone.”
Where would Debby’s arrest rank on the list of former Disney Channel stars’ scandals?
During one of her Jingle Ball performances, the "Come and Get It" singer dropped a rather common expletive, which shocked her young fans. However, if that's the biggest scandal to hit Selena, she should consider herself lucky.
