Debby Ryan Arrested For DUI
Debby Ryan was arrested for DUI last week in Los Angeles after she crashed her car into another vehicle.
The actress drover her 2016 Audi into a Mercedes after attempting a left turn around 11 p.m. local time. Police arrived on the scene, and the Disney Channel star allegedly failed a field sobriety test. The 22-year-old was then arrested for felony drunk driving. The actress’ breathalyzer tested .11, a few points over the legal .08 limit.
The other driver in the accident reportedly suffered minor injuries. Ryan, however, was given a reprieve, as her charges were knocked down to misdemeanors. She was charged with two counts, driving under the influence and driving with a .08 blood alcohol level or higher, reports TMZ.
Ryan starred on the Disney series “Jessie” for four seasons. In addition, Ryan has appeared on the show “The Suite Life on Deck,” and was featured in the 2012 Disney Channel original movie Radio Rebel. The former child star is also a singer, having toured with Fifth Harmony in 2015 as their opening act. Most recently, she guest-starred on “The Mysteries Of Laura” earlier this year.
Ryan, who has been active on social media in the days since her secret arrest, never hinted that anything was amiss. Gossip Cop will update should she now comment.
UPDATE: Ryan tweeted after the news broke, “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.”
