You know Drake Bell, right? No, not the rapper with the sweet dance moves. I’m talking about the actor who used to appear on Nickelodeon’s Drake & Josh, and before that The Amanda Show. Yep, that guy. Welp, he was arrested for DUI this week in Glendale, California.

TMZ reports that this Monday, an officer witnessed Drake speeding and swerving after stopping at a red light. He was reported going 55 in a 35 MPH zone. When cops pulled him over, there was allegedly a smell of alcohol coming from the car. Drake apparently failed an on-site sobriety test and was locked up for almost ten hours, eventually posting $20,000 bail.

So what’s the big deal about all this, besides it being yet another former kids’ television star getting into trouble? Just that Drake has frequently expressed his distaste on Twitter for a certain troublemaker named Justin Bieber. In fact, J-14 points out that Drake criticized Bieber for his own DUI arrest back in 2014.

He posted a link to a petition calling for Justin Bieber to be deported back to Canada.

He also shared a video titled “In Defense of Justin Bieber.” On the surface, you might think Drake changed his mind about the Biebs. But if you watch the video, you’ll see that it actually features a YouTuber unable to come up with a single thing to say to defend him.

In the past, Drake has also successfully trolled Bieber’s fans on social media. As you know if you frequently read Crushable, I’m never one to say anybody should stop criticizing Justin Bieber. There’s just the tiny caveat that, if you choose to do so, you should probably be careful not to do exactly the same things you’re criticizing him for. Because that kinda sorta makes you look… oh, what’s the word? Oh, right — hypocritical. Whoops.
