This is not the first time Disney star Adam Hicks, 25, has been prone to violent behavior, having shot himself, as well as hurt his girlfriend, prior to an alleged armed robbery spree.
TMZ is reporting that the "Freakish" actor shot himself in the leg back in July when he was spending time with friends. Hicks told officers at the time that it was an accident, however, according to court filings, the young star was "very uncooperative." He was arrested, but the case was eventually closed due to inadequate evidence.
There was more trouble for the "Zeke and Luther" star just two months later (September 2017), when he was arrested after police came to his residence where his girlfriend said that he pulled her by the hair, grabbed her arms, pinned her against a car, pushed her to the ground and kept attacking her, according to a court document procured by TMZ.
TMZ also reports that a neighbor who witnessed the incident did not cooperate with the police, and ultimately, his girlfriend would not cooperate either, so the case was never prosecuted.
TMZ broke the story that Hicks, who starred on "Pair of Kings" and "Lemonade Mouth," and his girlfriend, 23-year-old Danni Tamburo, were arrested after an alleged string of armed robberies in the Burbank area of Los Angeles. They reportedly pointed a gun at passersby and took their cellphones, money and any other property they had on them.
