Drake Bell charged with DUI after arrest
Drake Bell has apparently been officially charged with driving under the influence (DUI).
The former Nickelodeon star was pulled over on December 21 last year at 2.18am by police in Glendale, California, for straddling a lane, travelling at an unsafe speed and abruptly stopping at a red light.
According to TMZ.com, Drake has now been officially charged with one count of misdemeanour DUI by the Los Angeles County District Attorney.
The outlet reports that Drake was driving at 55km an hour in a 35 zone.
Glendale Police spokesperson Tahnee Lightfoot said at the time that officers "smelled an odour of alcohol" on the 29-year-old actor so administered a sobriety test, which Drake "did not satisfactorily complete".
Drake - who was travelling alone - was placed under arrest and was released on a citation after posting $20,000 in bail.
Due to also being charged with a DUI back in 2009 in San Diego, the actor now faces having a suspended license and up to four days in jail.
The actor is certainly no stranger to scandal, having caused outrage in June last year when he said he would still refer to 'I Am Cait' star Caitlyn Jenner by her previous identity of Bruce Jenner.
However, he later deleted the tweet and issued an apology for being "thoughtless and insensitive" towards the transgender community.
He said: "I sincerely apologise for my thoughtless insensitive remarks. I in no way meant to hurt or demean those going through a similar journey."
