Jamie Lynn Spears' old costar is having a rough time.

Matthew Underwood, who played the title character's snooty frenemy Logan on Nickelodeon's Zoey 101, was arrested this morning in Florida on suspicion of cannabis and paraphernalia possession and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

So what was the 22-year-old Nickelodeon star allegedly doing?

According to the arrest report obtained by E! News, officers showed up at Underwood's Port St. Lucie residence to executive a narcotics search warrant and, after their knocks went unanswered, let themselves in.

Authorities found Underwood and a 17-year-old girl in the master bedroom, per the report, and then a search turned up cannabis and "numerous smoking devices" in the kitchen and garage.

After being read his rights, Underwood admitted that the cannabis was his and that the paraphernalia belonged to him and the girl, who remains unidentified because she's a minor. The girl, meanwhile, told the police that they both sleep in the master bedroom and that Underwood "gives her cannabis."

They were both taken into custody, after which the teen was turned over to her grandfather and Underwood was released at 12:56 p.m. after posting a $2,250 bond.
