Nickelodeon star Cody Longo, who stars on the Nick show “Hollywood Heights,” was arrested for DUI this week in Los Angeles, according to TMZ.

Longo, 25, was reportedly driving erratically — flashing his headlights at other drivers, aggressively tailgating — while driving around Hollywood at 2:30 a.m. early Thursday morning.

Cops pulled him over and observed that Longo smelled of alcohol. They administered a series of field sobriety tests, which Longo failed. One source says Longo’s blood alcohol level was .19 and .20, more than twice the legal limit.

Longo was arrested, taken into custody and booked at a local police station. After posting the $15,000 bail, Longo was released.

“This was an unfortunate misunderstanding,” a rep for Longo tells TMZ. “Cody takes it very seriously as his focus is music and acting.”

In addition to “Hollywood Heights,” the young actor has appeared on “Days of Our Lives” and “Piranha 3D.”
