Disney Channel star Debby Ryan was arrested for driving under the influence, according to PEOPLE, and now the actress has taken to Twitter to apologize. 

“Over the last few days I have had the chance to think about my actions, and I wish I had used better judgment,” the 22-year-old star of Jessie wrote. “I recognize that I am a role model and have always worked hard to set a good example for my millions of fans. I am so sorry to disappoint everyone.”

TMZ reports that Ryan was administered a field sobriety test after she hit another vehicle on April 4. She is out on $100,000 bail, the site reports.

Ryan rose to prominence on Disney Channel starting with her supporting role on The Suite Life on Deck before moving on to headline Jessie for four seasons. She has been seen more recently in a recurring role on NBC’s Mysteries of Laura.
