Could one of Hannah Montana's sidekicks end up in jail?

Mitchel Musso, 20, has been charged with two counts of drunken driving, TMZ reports.

The Disney Channel star – best known for his work as Miley Cyrus's pal Oliver Oken on Hannah Montanawas arrested in Burbank, Calif., on Oct. 16 after he allegedly failed to slow down for police directing traffic for an unrelated accident.

Authorities allege Musso's blood-alcohol level was higher than .08, though he is under the legal drinking age of 21 so any alcohol in his body would be considered illegal. Musso faces a maximum of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted on both misdemeanor counts.

Musso, who also stars in the Disney series Pair of Kings and Prank Stars, was released on $5,000 bail after his arrest. He is due back in court Nov. 11.
