Mitchel Musso has been arrested for public intoxication and theft after he was caught stealing a bag of chips while drunk.

Mitchel Musso, who played the role of Oliver Oken opposite Miley Cyrus in Hannah Montana, was taken into police custody in Rockwall, Texas on Saturday (Aug 26). According to the Rockwall Police Department, the 32-year-old actor was drunk and they had been notified that he had stolen some chips without paying for them.

Mitchel spent the night at the Rockwall County Detention Center. He was released after paying a $1,000 bail.
