In a surprising incident in Rockwall, Texas, Mitchel Musso, the beloved actor renowned for his portrayal of Oliver Oken in Disney Channel's 'Hannah Montana,' was arrested on Saturday. The actor, now 32, was reportedly under the influence when apprehended for pilfering a bag of chips from a local supermarket.

According to sources close to TMZ, witnesses near Musso's hotel recounted the actor's inebriated demeanor, prompting the Rockwall police's intervention. The situation escalated when Musso allegedly became confrontational upon being confronted by store personnel, urging him to pay for the chips.

Musso's Diverse Entertainment Legacy

Apart from his memorable role in 'Hannah Montana,' Musso has left a mark in the entertainment industry with roles in productions like 'Walker, Texas Ranger,' 'Monster House,' and by lending his voice to the animated series 'Phineas and Ferb.'

But as officers apprehended Musso outside his hotel, the complications didn't end with a stolen snack and intoxication. Authorities uncovered additional outstanding warrants in the actor's name, adding layers to his legal troubles.

The charges now stacked against Musso include public intoxication, theft, failure to present a driver's license, and infractions related to prior mishaps. Following the events, Musso secured his release by posting a $1,000 bail.

Notably, this isn't his first encounter with the law concerning alcohol-related indiscretions. Back in October 2011, a younger, 20-year-old Musso faced arrest in California for driving over the legal blood alcohol limit – a significant offense, especially given he was below the legal drinking age at the time.

Consequently, the aftermath saw the actor's departure from the series 'Pair of Kings' as his character was written out. This latest incident adds another chapter to the actor's controversial history, prompting many to wonder about his future in the industry. As fans and followers await further details, the hope remains for Musso's well-being and redemption.
