There's one burning question we all have here and that is, what would Demi Lovato think?! The former Disney Channel star and Sonny With a Chance actor Brandon Mychal Smith was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol on July 23, 2017. However, the news was just confirmed over the weekend. TMZ broke the story and is reporting that Brandon was the behind the wheel of his Rolls-Royce in Burbank, California when he almost ran a red light.
Brandon allegedly put his car in reverse when he realized he had pulled too far into the intersection and was blocking a crosswalk. This is when police officers sitting on the other side of the road decided to take action and pull Brandon over. He was given a breathalyzer test which showed that his blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit in the state of California.
The Disney Channel alum was arrested on the spot. It was 7:10 a.m. He was taken into custody where he stayed for several hours on a $15,000 bail. Brandon was released later on that same day. He has yet to make a statement regarding the whole ordeal.
Brandon is known not only for his role on Sonny With a Chance but several other projects. He played a minor role on the Disney Channel show Phil of the Future, So Random! and She's All That. He also worked on the movie Dirty Grandpa and has reoccurring roles on You're the Worst and Sweet/Vicious.
There's no telling where Brandon was going to or coming from at the time. Thankfully, police officers stepped in before Brandon hurt himself or anyone else on the road. Unfortunately, this isn't the first time a Disney Channel star has made headlines for breaking the law and it probably won't be the last. Everyone makes mistakes including celebrities. Let's just hope Brandon learned his lesson from this one.
