Disney star Brandon Mychal Smith, who starred on “Hannah Montana” and “Sonny with a Chance,” was arrested last week and charged with a DUI after nearly rolling his Rolls-Royce through a red light, TMZ reported.

The 28-year-old was stopped in Burbank, Calif., around 7 a.m. on July 23 for a traffic violation when field sobriety tests revealed he was under the influence of alcohol, police told Us Weekly.

Smith, who played Nico Harris alongside Demi Lovato on “Sonny with a Chance,” was charged with a DUI and remained in custody for several hours before his release.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 17.

The actor later went on to star in “You’re the Worst” and “Sweet/Vicious” and was in discussions to replace Nick Cannon as host of “America’s Got Talent,” but the role eventually ended up going to former model Tyra Banks.
