Voice Actor Rodger Bumpass ‘Squidward’ in ‘Spongebob Squarepants’ Arrested on Suspicion of DUI


Voice actor Rodger Bumpass, best known for his role as Squidward Tentacles on the television show SpongeBob SquarePants, was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in Burbank, police said.

Just before 11 p.m. Friday, police responded to the 400 block of South Fairview Street, where they found the 64-year-old Burbank resident leaning against a blue PT Cruiser, which was stopped in the middle of the street, said Burbank Police Sgt. Claudio Losacco.

When officers approached, Bumpass walked away and nearly fell.

According to police, Bumpass subsequently failed a field sobriety test. A breath test reportedly showed that his blood alcohol content was more than double the legal limit.

He was released the following morning with a citation and is due back in court next month.
