Mitchel Musso, the former Disney actor famous for playing Oliver Oken on Hannah Montana, was arrested in Texas over the weekend after an incident at a Rockwall hotel.

Musso was booked on Saturday evening, according to Rockwall County jail records, over charges of public intoxication and theft of an item under $100.

Around 7:15 p.m. local time on Aug. 26, officers responded to "a disturbance" at a hotel, reads a press release from the Rockwall Police Department. Upon arrival, they were informed that an individual who "appeared intoxicated" had entered the hotel, selected a bag of chips, and began eating them. When staffers asked him to pay, he became "verbally abusive" and left.

The responding officers found the 32-year-old Musso outside of the hotel, determined that he was intoxicated, and took him into custody. A routine records check also revealed that Musso had several outstanding traffic warrants, so he was additionally charged for an expired registration, failure to display a driver's license, and violating a promise to appear. After a night in jail, Musso was released for posting a $1,000 bond.

Representatives for Musso did not immediately respond to EW's request for comment.
