Remember bovine little Max Russo from Wizards of Waverly Place? Well, the 19 year old star got into trouble with the law for driving under intoxication in late 2013. While he eventually managed to escape the DUI charges, he was named in a separate incident that involved a hit-and-run accident.
Nerdy Justin Russo from Wizards of Waverly Place was arrested, albeit wrongfully, back in 2010 for, and we quote, challenging someone to fight.

Mitchel spent a couple of hours behind bars for drunk-driving in 2011, with bail set at US$5,000. He was eventually set free without bail.
