Disney star Adam Hicks ‘attacked girlfriend, shot himself’

Disney star Adam Hicks, who was this week arrested on suspicion of armed robbery in California, allegedly has a history of violence and was arrested twice in 2107. 

Police say Hicks, 25, shot himself in the leg in July by accident while he was with friends, and that he became ‘very uncooperative’ when cops pressed him on the incident.

He was arrested but the case was closed due to insufficient evidence, according to TMZ.  

In September, the Zeke and Luther star was arrested again after his girlfriend, Danni Tamburo, 23, told police he grabbed her arms, pulled her hair, pinned her against a car, pushed her to the ground and then continued to attack her.

While a neighbor originally told police they witnessed the alleged assault, they became uncooperative. His girlfriend also refused to cooperate and that case was not prosecuted.  

Cops say Hicks, who is currently starring on Hulu’s Freakish, and Tamburo, who is also an actress, robbed four people in the early morning hours of Wednesday.

In surveillance video, a man who is believed to be Hicks, approaches a man walking on the street. The suspect has a gun tucked under his arm. 

The two have an exchange and the victim then begins handing valuables over.

Police say they robbed at least four people Wednesday. 

One victim was a 52-year-old man who was walking in the Burbank area around 5.15am.

Police say that victim was approached by the Disney star, who was holding a gun, and demanded his wallet.

‘Fearing for his life, the victim ran away and was able to escape to safety,’ Burbank police said.

Three additional robberies took place within minutes of each other. 

Witnesses described the suspected robber’s vehicle as a dark-colored Kia with at least two people inside. Police located the Kia and arrested Tamburo.

Police say they also found property inside the vehicle that belonged to one of the victims. 

Tamburo allegedly acted as the getaway driver for Hicks. Later in the day a SWAT team went to the property where Hicks was staying and arrested him for armed robbery.

Cops say additional stolen property was found inside the residence when a search warrant was served. 

Hicks often tweets messages about being ‘blessed’ and the importance of being ‘kind, humble and righteous.’

He has starred in Disney’s ‘Zeke and Luther,’ ‘Pair of Kings’ and ‘Lemonade Mouth.’ 

Bail was set at $350,000 for both Tamburo and Hicks. She made bail Friday and is scheduled to appear in court in February.

It is unclear if Hicks still remains behind bars.
