Disney star Billy Unger has thanked fans for their support following his driving under the influence (Dui) arrest.

The National Treasure: Book of Secrets actor, 18, was driving through in Malibu, California on Saturday (28Jun14) when his car was pulled over for speeding.

Unger was subsequently arrested after failing a breathalyzer test.

He has now thanked fans for their messages of support and urged them not to speculate about the incident.

A statement from the teen reads, "In light of last Saturday's occurrence, I wish to let all my fans know how much I value and appreciate their continued support of me at this time.

"As I move forward responsibly in this matter, I simply ask the public, and more importantly my fans, to reserve judgment and allow the opportunity for me to address this issue properly through the legal system."
