Debby Ryan, DisneyBot 63521-22, arrested for DUI
Oh no! One of my favorite Disney Channel stars (yes, real thing that I just typed), has been arrested for drunken driving.
Debby Ryan, the star of Jessie, was arrested in Los Angeles around 11 p.m. sometime last week when she was behind the wheel of her 2016 Audi, made a left turn and hit a Mercedes. According to TMZ, the 22-year-old failed a sobriety test and was hauled off to the pokey.
Initially, the charge was classified as a felony as the driver of the Mercedes claimed to be hurt, but it was reduced to a misdemeanor because the injury wasn’t serious and the actress blew a .11, which is pretty close to the legal limit. Also, she’s a wholesome Disney actress, which couldn’t have hurt her cause.
Ryan’s out on $100,000 bail after being charged with driving under the influence and driving with a .08 blood alcohol level or higher, which we thought was the same thing until now.
“Over the last few days I have had the chance to think about my actions, and I wish I had used better judgement,” Ryan tweeted Wednesday. “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.”
