Another child from the House of Mickey Mouse has gotten on the wrong side of the law. It’s not Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, or even Lindsay Lohan. This time it’s a relatively new addition to the mouse ear-wearing club: Billy Unger.
Oh you don’t watch countless hours of Disney Channel everyday? Then let us clue you in on who exactly Billy is.
The 18-year-old plays Chase Davenport on Disney sitcom Lab Rats. You might also have seen him play bit parts on shows like Ghost Whisperer and Desperate Housewives as well as in the 2010 Kristen Bell-fronted movie You Again. But bummer for Billy, because this kid just got busted.
TMZ reports the actor was arrested on June 28 for DUI while driving along the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. It was just after midnight when sheriff's deputies pulled him over for speeding. They claim Billy was under the influence; he reportedly blew a .08, which, while being on par with the California state legal limit of .08 is way too much for a kid under 21 to have in his system.
So you know what follows: Billy was arrested, taken to jail, and later released. No word yet on what’s on the docket for his punishment, but anybody else wondering if Disney should just open its own drunk driving education program?
