It isn't easy being a child actor — just ask Billy Unger. The Disney XD Lab Rats star probably wishes he wasn't famous after being pulled over in Malibu, California, on Friday night for driving under the influence.

The 18-year-old actor was on the Pacific Coast Highway when he was pulled over for speeding. According to TMZ, he was arrested after the cops learned he had been drinking. Not only is Unger under age, but California has a zero-tolerance law for any drinking under the age of 21.

By late Monday, the news had spread regarding his arrest, and Unger addressed the issue with a statement on Twitter. He thanked his fans for their support, but he also urged everyone to wait until he gets his day in court.
