Former Hannah Montana Star Faces Legal Woes

Former Hannah Montana actor Mitchel Musso, renowned for his role as Oliver Oken on the Disney hit, found himself in legal trouble over the weekend. The 32-year-old star was arrested in his hometown of Rockwell, Texas. He is facing charges of theft and public intoxication after reportedly stealing a bag of crisps.

Musso, who starred alongside Miley Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus on the popular Disney series from 2006 to 2011, encountered the legal issue at a local hotel. According to reports from Sky’s US partner network NBC, police were summoned after Musso allegedly took the bag of crisps without making payment.

Upon being confronted about the unpaid item, Musso purportedly declined to pay and engaged in verbally aggressive behavior. The charges against him also include expired car registration, failure to display a driving license, and violating a “promise to appear” notice.

After a night in custody, Musso was released on Sunday on a £793 bond. This isn’t the actor’s first brush with the law. He previously faced legal consequences in 2011 for driving under the influence in Burbank, California.

Following that incident, he was placed on 36 months of informal probation, ordered to attend alcohol education classes, and fined.

Apart from his role on Hannah Montana, Musso has featured in other Disney productions, such as Pair of Kings and Phineas and Ferb. His recent arrest has raised eyebrows among fans who remember him as the lovable Oliver on the beloved TV show.
