UPDATE (Aug. 1, 2011): Rottman was charged with misdemeanor driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08 or above. Arraignment is set for Aug. 5.

The erstwhile star of Nickelodeon's Gigantic has a little legal problem on his hands.

Ryan Rottman was popped for a DUI Thursday night in Hollywood, E! News has confirmed.

So how'd he get into this mess?

According to an LAPD spokesman, an officer in a patrol car witnessed the TV hunk jump a curb. The cops pulled over Rottman, who allegedly reeked of booze. He was given and flubbed a field sobriety test and then blew a 0.19 on a Breathalyzer—more than double California's legal limit.

Rottman, 27, was taken into custody and booked on suspicion of DUI shortly after midnight. He was released from the Van Nuys jail a few hours later without posting bond.

Rottman got his start as an extra in the 2008 big-screen comedy The House Bunny and appeared in bit roles in a few other features before landing a plum part last year on Gigantic opposite Grace Gummer and Gia Mantegna (better known as the respective daughters of Meryl Streep and Joe Mantegna). The teen dramedy ran for one season before it was canceled in April.

Rottman also dates fellow Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice of Zoey 101 fame.
