WTF?! Two ‘Wizards Of Waverley Place’ actors were arrested this week

What the hell is going on?

In today's very unexpected and rather disturbing news: Two actors from the hit Disney Channel show Wizards of Waverly Place (AKA the show that gave Selena Gomez's her big break) have been arrested.

Former Disney star David Henrie, who played Selena's big brother 'Justin Russo' on the show, was reportedly arrested at Los Angeles Airport for carrying a loaded gun through airport security.

A public information officer with the LAX police told People that the actor "was arrested at 9:05 a.m. for possession of a loaded handgun at Terminal 2 at LAX," and TMZ have stated that it was a 9mm pistol and David was detained and taken to a police station immediately.

This scary news comes just five days after David shared with the world that he and his wife, Maria Cahill Henrie, are expecting a baby girl. Ironically, his announcement of the joyous news on Instagram featured some (now-deleted) tone-deaf comments about guns:

"ITS A GIRL ITS A GIRL ITS A GIRL. Im a Poppa!!!!!!! Im so overwhelmed with joy I had to share this with you guys. I'm already singing 'I Loved Her First'. That reminds me. Where's my shotgun? I don't have a shotgun. Someone get me a shotgun! I can't wait to sit her down on a couch and tell her a 9 season story of How I Met Your Mother."

David has since tweeted about the incident, writing, "I take responsibility for the situation at LAX today. I unintentionally brought my legally owned gun which is registered in my name to the airport".

David's arrest has now been followed up with a shocking second arrest of a Wizards of Waverly Place cast member.

Daniel Samonas, who played Selena Gomez's love interest 'Dean Moriarty' on the Disney Channel series, has been taken into police custody at Burning Man festival for allegedly driving under the influence — AKA a D.U.I.

The County Sheriff's Office is currently awaiting the results of a blood test, but Sheriff Jerry Allen claims that the actor was driving recklessly through a very populated portion of the city.

Here's Daniel enjoying himself in a bathtub at Burning Man, for reference:

Selena Gomez is yet to comment on the arrests of her former co-stars.
