Debby Ryan—of Jessie, The Suite Life on Deck, and all-around clean teen Disney channel princess fame—was arrested last week for driving under the influence. If your first thought was “…Who???” do not fret. That just means you’re above the age of 13.
Anyway, E! News reports “The Disney darling was driving around Los Angeles on April 5, 2016 when she made a left turn in her Audi and crashed into a Mercedes Benz. LAPD confirms…that the 22-year-old…star was arrested on a felony DUI; however, local authorities ultimately reduced her offense to a misdemeanor.” Guess she couldn’t get away with leaving a note, so she was charged with two misdemeanors and released on $100,000 bail. Unclear if that’s a lot for her—how much money do B-list Disney stars make?
Ryan took to Twitter after the incident to apologize to the tiny children who look up to her, writing,“Over the last few days I have had the chance to think about my actions, and I wish I had used better judgement…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.” Yeah, we’re sure you’re sorry for disappointing everyone, and not for probs killing your (already miniscule) career.
Don’t worry Debby, you’re not alone. You join an elite club of rule breakers with the likes of Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie, and Khloe Kardashian. Maybe now some of their fame will rub off on you.
