There is a long history of child stars (Disney and otherwise) having trouble later in life. Whether that manifests itself in addictions, unruly behavior, or criminal activity, it’s never good.

Hannah Montana Star

This story involves Hannah Montana actor Michel Musso, who portrayed Oliver Oken on the hit Disney Channel series from 2006 to 2011. Over the past weekend, the former Disney child star was arrested on charges of public intoxication and theft. According to the Rockwall police department, they were dispatched for a “disturbance at a hotel located in the 2600 Block of Lakefront Trail in Rockwall, TX.”

Once they arrived, officers found Musso drunk and eating a bag of stolen potato chips. According to the police, when the hotel owner asked Mitchel Musso to pay for the chips, he “became verbally abusive and left without rendering payment.”

About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
