The former child star, 30, was pulled over in Glendale, California on 21 December (15), after police officers allegedly spotted his vehicle swerving and abruptly stopping at a red light.

Bell reportedly failed a field sobriety test, and then refused to take a chemical test.

His arrest came five-and-a-half-years after he was convicted of driving under the influence in San Diego, California in May, 2010.

If convicted in his latest offence, the former Drake & Josh star faces a year in county jail. He is due back in court in August (16).
