The 22-year-old actress, best known for her roles in Jessie and The Suite Life on Deck, was apprehended by police after crashing her Audi into a Mercedes in Los Angeles at the end of last week (ends08Apr16).

TMZ reports Debby was given a field sobriety test before being arrested for felony driving under the influence (DUI).

The driver of the Mercedes claimed an injury, prompting the felony charge, which a police source explained to the outlet was standard procedure.

However, Debby's charge was dropped to a misdemeanour after only just failing a Breathalyzer test. The injury to the other motorist was said to be minor.

The star now has two criminal offences against her name; one for driving under the influence and the second for driving with a .08 blood alcohol level or higher.

Debby is currently home on $100,000 (£70,000) bail.

She is the latest Disney star to be arrested for DUI - Lindsay Lohan, Jake T. Austin and Hannah Montana star Mitchel Musso have previously also been arrested for motoring offences.
