Former Hannah Montana sensation Mitchel Musso was arrested over the weekend on multiple charges.

Musso, 32,  is an American actor and singer renowned for his Disney Channel roles, notably as Oliver Oken in Hannah Montana, Jeremy Johnson in Phineas and Ferb and King Brady in Pair of Kings.

He also hosted Disney’s PrankStars.

Musso voiced DJ in the animated film Monster House and played Raymond Figg in the 2005 Disney Channel Original Movie, Life Is Ruff.

His self-titled debut album, released on June 2, 2009, through Walt Disney Records, debuted at number 19 on the Billboard 200 chart.

To the shock of many of Musso’s fans, it has been reported that the star has been arrested.

The actor was taken into custody following a disturbance call at a local hotel, where he was accused of acting unruly and taking a bag of potato chips without paying.

The incident unfolded on August 26, when authorities responded to a call reporting a disruptive individual who allegedly took a bag of potato chips from a hotel’s food market.

The man, believed to be intoxicated, reportedly consumed the chips without paying. When confronted by hotel staff, he reportedly became verbally abusive before leaving the premises without paying for the item.

According to the Rockwall County Sheriff’s Office, Musso was arrested for public intoxication and theft, with the value of the stolen item being less than $100.

Additionally, a routine records check revealed outstanding traffic warrants for the former child star.

After spending a night in jail, Musso was released on the afternoon of August 27 after posting a $1,000 bond.

The charges against him also include expired registration, failure to display a driver’s license, and violating a ‘promise to appear’ notice.

The police’s mugshot of Musso depicted him with what appeared to be a towel wrapped around his torso.

While Musso gained prominence through his role on Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana, his career extended beyond the popular show.

Musso pursued a music career, although it didn’t attain the same level of success as his fellow Hannah Montana co-star Miley Cyrus.

As the legal proceedings unfold, fans and observers alike will be watching closely to see how Musso handles this chapter in his life and what it might mean for his career moving forward.
