Former Disney Star Adam Hicks Arrested on Suspicion of Multiple Armed Street Robberies
By Desiree Murphy
Former Disney Channel star Adam Hicks has been arrested and charged with multiple armed street robberies.
According to court documents obtained by ET, the 25-year-old actor allegedly committed five counts of armed robberies in Burbank, California, Wednesday morning with a 23-year-old female, identified as Danni Tamburo.
The documents also allege that Hicks used a firearm for two of the five attempts of second degree robbery. One of the victims was over the age of 65.
A spokesperson for the Burbank police department told ET on Wednesday that both were arrested at 2 p.m. Hicks was held on a $350,000 bail.
The Las Vegas, Nevada, native has two prior arrests on his record, TMZ reports. He was arrested for battery last September, just two months after he was arrested for firing a gun. The district attorney rejected both cases for insufficient evidence.
Hicks appeared on Disney shows like Zeke and Luther and Pair of Kings, but was best known for his role as Wen in Lemonade Mouth, an original TV movie released by the network in 2011. He recently appeared on Hulu's Freakish with fellow Disney star Leo Howard.
