Drake Bell has officially been charged with a DUI following his December arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence. On Wednesday, the Los Angeles County District Attorney charged the actor with a misdemeanor, for which he’s facing a minimum of four days in jail and a suspended license.

As Gossip Cop reported, Bell was pulled over at around 2 a.m. in Glendale, California in late December after police witnessed him driving erratically. A Glendale Police spokesperson reported that Bell was “swerving and speeding after abruptly stopping at a red light.”

After detecting the smell of alcohol coming from his car, the cops issued the actor a field sobriety test, which he failed. Authorities also reported that the actor refused to take a breathalyzer test. Bell was released just a few hours after being booked, and was issued a citation.

Although the actor is very active on social media, he has yet to comment on the incident. Bell is best known for starring on the Nickelodeon show “Drake & Josh,” but recently embarked on a music career. He was also charged with a DUI in San Diego in 2009, making him a repeat offender. Gossip Cop will provide updates as this story develops.
