Drake & Josh star Drake Bell 'charged with endangering children' & 'disseminating matter harmful to juveniles'

DRAKE Bell has been charged with "attempting to endanger children" though he has pleaded "not guilty."

The Nickelodean star was previously accused of "verbal and physical abuse" by his ex-girlfriend, though he also denied those claims.

Drake, 34, has been charged with "disseminating matter harmful to juveniles," according to TMZ.

The child star was also accused of "attempted endangering children" but has plead "not guilty."

Police arrested the singer in Cleveland, Ohio, and he appeared in Cuyahoga County court on Thursday.

Drake entered a not guilty plea and posted a $2,500 bond which ordered him to have no contact with his alleged victim.

The incident allegedly occurred on December 1st, 2017, the day that the TV star was set to perform at a venue in Cleveland.

The California native was indicted last month and will return to court on June 23rd.

This was not the first time Drake has encountered legal issues, as in August of 2020 he was accused of "verbal and physical" abuse by his ex-girlfriend Melissa Lingafelt.

In a series of TikTok videos, the blonde claimed her famous ex was aggressive towards her when they lived together at ages 16 and 20.

"It wasn’t until about a year when the verbal abuse started.

"And when I say verbal abuse, imagine the worst type of verbal abuse you could ever imagine, and that was what I got," she alleged.

"It then turned into physical – hitting, throwing, everything. At the pinnacle of it, he [dragged] me down the stairs of our house… My face hit every step on the way down. I have photos of this."
