School Of Rock actor JOEY GAYDOS has apologised to fans after he was arrested for driving under the influence before he is even old enough to drink.
The 17-year-old - who played comedian Jack Black's student bassist in the 2003 comedy - was pulled over by cops in Michigan last month (Feb09) after allegedly attempting to drive away from a fast food restaurant while intoxicated.
The star, who fronts a band called The Joey Gaydos Group, tells TMZ.com, "The first thing I would like to say is, I made a huge mistake, and I really regret my actions. What I did was wrong, and all I can say is, I'm sorry to anyone I may have let down, I'm only human, and we all make mistakes.
"To everyone who has supported me through this I would like to say, thank you, it really means a lot."
