An officer was directing traffic and Musso failed to slow down when coming to the intersection," said Kelley. "He didn't obey instructions and was pulled over. A DUI investigation was held and he was given a field sobriety test."

The 20-year-old actor was booked on suspicion of DUI with bail set at $5,000. However, because he had no outstanding warrants on his record, he was released after a few hours without having to post bail.

Musso currently stars on the Disney Channel show "Pair of Kings" and voices a character on the animated series "Phineas and Ferb."
