22-year-old Disney channel star Debby Ryan was arrested for drunk driving. The actress starred on the channel’s popular shows Jessie and Suite Life on Deck. She later publicly apologized for her actions on social media.
Ryan crashed into the back of another vehicle, causing minor injuries to the other driver. Police were called to the scene of the accident and conducted a sobriety test. The actress failed as she had a blood alcohol level of .11, which is over the legal limit. Ryan was immediately arrested and given misdemeanor charges, rather than the expected felony charges. She was released from jail on a $100,000 bond.
