Los Angeles: Mitchel Musso has been arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI), but was released afterwards.

The 20-year-old actor who played Oliver in the hit Disney series and film, is due back in court next month, reported Ace Showbiz.

Musso was arrested in California. He failed to slow down for police officers directing traffic for an unrelated accident. He was pulled over and tested .08 in blood-alcohol level.

Musso now faces a maximum of six months in jail and a USD 1,000 fine if convicted on both misdemeanor counts. He is due to be back in court on November 11.

Musso`s case may be lightened by the fact that he has clean record. His bail was set at USD 5,000 but reportedly he did not have to pay for it upon release because of he had not had a brush with the law.
