Mitchel Musso
-- the Disney star who played Oliver Oken on "Hannah Montana" -- was arrested for drunk driving in Burbank, CA yesterday ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... 20-year-old Musso was pulled over at 3:43 AM Sunday ... after he failed to slow down for cops who were directing traffic for an unrelated accident.

We're told ... cops approached Musso's 2007 black Mercedes Benz and detected a "strong odor of alcohol."

Musso -- who also stars on the Disney hits "Pair of Kings" and "PrankStars" -- was given a field sobriety test ... and we're told he performed poorly. 

Law enforcement sources also tell us ... Musso was given a breathalyzer test and blew WELL ABOVE .08 ... the legal limit in CA for people who are OVER the age of 21.

Musso was booked on suspicion of DUI and hauled to a nearby station. Bail was set at $5,000.

According to his booking sheet, Musso is 5'8" and 133 lbs.

Musso was released from custody on his own recognizance a few hours later.

I don't understand the level of hatred on this post. Getting a DUI doesn't mean you've "gone wild" it just means you've gone stupid. He made a mistake. We have no evidence to suggest that he's an alcoholic or some crazy party animal because this only happened ONCE. He's a young kid and people under the age of 21 drink and don't always turn out to be total messes. Btw, it's not DISNEY'S job to parent these kids and teach them values. They do have parents, you know. Ugh...the dumbassness.

Go back and look at how many of these tween stars screw-up. You're right it's not Disney's job to parent however these kids are like little businesses for Disney. Once that business has stopped "producing" they're out the door.

These Disney tween stars are given everything they want and THAT creates a sense of entitlement and THAT stems of Disney "yes-ing" them to death.

Once these kids get tossed to the curb, they cant handle real life and THAT is what DIsney has created. Oh and most of the parents are in it for the money - they sell their kids off for profit

Hopefully they'll take his kid off tv. He's like a modern day Screech only uglier and even more annoying.
