Underage Disney Star Arrested Right Before the Kick-Off of Coachella
Former Disney stars get into hot water all the time. All you gotta do is look at Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas to know that. But you’ll rarely find the current talents of the children’s company making scandalous headlines. It’s, like, practically forbidden. Notice how we said “rarely” and “practically,” though? ’cause, believe it or not it happens on occasion…
Case in point, the events that went down last week: On Thursday night, right before the kick-off of the 2016 Coachella Music Festival, 20-year-old Kelli Berglund, the star of Disney XD’s Lab Rats: Elite Force, was arrested. According to TMZ, “she was trying to get into a restricted area to meet up with friends.” The issue: she was caught with a false identification card. “Security spotted the fake and alerted the cops,” the report claimed.
Fortunately for the young actress, she was reportedly only issued a citation, and released soon after her mug shot was taken. And, clearly, it didn’t hold her back from the party scene, as she was spotted hitting up the bash for Paper magazine the following night.
Of course, Kelli’s not the first Disney star to get arrested. These Disney alums were taken into custody for drugs & other serious crimes:
The Queen of Pop has been to jail more than once. Her most notable arrest was in 2007, when the former Mickey Mouse Club star was locked up after being involved in a hit-and-run accident. In addition to hitting a parked car and leaving the scene, Brit was charged with driving without a valid license. Yikes! A year later, the "Pretty Girls" singer was again arrested, this time for a custodial dispute.
