“It’s unfortunate, it’s a misunderstanding,” Mitchel shared with Entertainment Weekly.

According to a press release from the police, a shirtless Mitchel allegedly “appeared intoxicated” when he entered the SpringHill Suites Dallas Rockwall, took a bag of chips, and started eating them without paying for them.

“I didn’t know it was illegal not to wear shirts these days,” Mitchel shared, adding that he had just come in with friends from a docked boat on the harbor and went to the hotel to restock on snacks.

He also said that the employee who was “agitated from the get go” grabbed the chips out of his hand.

“He told me to ‘get the f–k out,’ were the words he used,” Mitchel claimed. “And that kind of set me off. And he said, ‘I’m gonna call the police’ and I said go for it.”

The police’s press release states that Mitchel became “verbally abusive” towards the staffers when they asked him to pay, and that’s when he stormed out.

However, Mitchel claims, “I was the one who was being verbally abused and also harassed. Someone ripping something out of your hand is not the most polite manners to have in this situation.”

Mitchel went on to claim that initial responding officers assured him that the hotel would not be pressing chargers.

“And then the brigade showed up. There was literally, there was 10, 11 cop cars, 20 officers outside surrounding me and that’s when I got scared,” Mitchel recalled.

He continued, “I shut my mouth and I just put my hands behind my back because that’s where it was going to begin with, and I let them take me in.”

According to authorities, officers found Mitchel outside of the hotel, determined that he was intoxicated, and took him into custody. A routine records check revealed that Mitchel had several outstanding traffic warrants, so he was additionally charged for an expired registration, failure to display a driver’s license, and violating a promise to appear.

Mitchel says that the unpaid tickets are from 2019 and what “ultimately the reason why they arrested me.”

“I haven’t lived in Rockwall for years and I guess they’d been sending it to my old house there,” Mitchel concluded. “And it had become a warrant and they used it against me. So since then, all of those warrants have been paid and the matter has been resolved.”

After his arrest, Mitchel was released on $1,000 bail.
