America's favorite cartoon mouse has joined Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan in the pantheon of celebrity DUI arrests, Sacramento County Sheriff's Department arrest records show.

On Jan. 24 within the span of an hour, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department arrested Mickey Mouse twice on charges of driving under the influence and once for driving on a revoked license, according to records.

Sheriff's Department spokesman Sgt. Tim Curran was surprised to hear of the arrest.

"I don't know how that got in there," he said. "When trainees learn to use our system, they put that (name) in. ... It's one of the names we can use without getting in trouble."

In the arrest log, Mouse is described as a 47-year-old African American man standing 5-feet, 9-inches and weighing 190 pounds.

Mickey Mouse is also listed a resident of Anaheim and is employed as a bartender, according to arrest records.

Jail records indicate Mouse also goes by the aliases "Buzz Lightyear" and "Donnie Duck" and was arrested on felony drunk driving charges in 2005.
