Hannah Montana star Mitchel Musso was arrested early Sunday morning in Burbank, California and charged with DUI. He failed to heed an earlier police warning that followed an unrelated car accident.
According to a report from Hollywood Life, Musso--who is just 20 years old--played the role of Oliver Oken on the Disney hit series, which starred singer Miley Cyrus. Is she aware of her former co-star and friend's arrest?
Mitchel Musso made his film debut in Secondhand Lions. In addition to starring in Hannah Montana, he also voiced a role in Disney's animated series Phineas and Ferb and hosts the Disney Channel reality series call PrankStars.
It certainly sounds like Musso has a lot going for him. Why would he jeopardize it all with a DUI--not to mention underage drinking as well?
Of course it's not all that unusual for young people to dabble in drugs and alcohol. After all, another of the Hannah Montana stars--Miley Cyrus herself--had that little matter of the bong that went viral on YouTube. Everyone remembers that incident--right? Still it's sad and somewhat disheartening to see these young talents take their lives for granted and risk them, as well as risking the lives of others.
Hopefully this Hannah Montana star will learn from his mistake and get some help for his drinking if it is deemed necessary. Do you think Miley Cyrus has risen about her dalliances with drugs and alcohol? Do you think this will wind up just being a one-time event for Mitchel Musso?
