Rodger Bumpass, Voice of Squidward, Arrested for DUI

Rodger Bumpass, who voices the character Squidward Tentacles on the beloved animated children’s series Spongebob Squarepants, has been arrested for DUI.

The 64-year-old voiceover actor was arrested on Friday night (January 15) at around 11pm in Burbank, Calif.

Police noticed a car in the middle of the road and a man leaning against it, according to TMZ. Rodger was the man leaning against the car and he walked away as they approached him, but he nearly fell as he was so unsteady. He then confessed to the cops that he was driving just before they found him and he failed a field sobriety test. His blood alcohol limit was more than twice the legal limit, according to the site’s sources.

Rodger has been voicing the role of Squidward for more than 15 years and his IMDb page boasts more than 123 credits.
