'Heroes' actor Adrian Pasdar charged with DUI


Court records show actor Adrian Pasdar has been charged with drunken driving, and his arraignment is scheduled for later this week.

The 44-year-old actor was arrested Jan. 27 after authorities say they spotted him speeding and veering over two lanes of traffic on a Los Angeles freeway.

He was charged with one count of driving under the influence on Friday. City attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan (mah-tell-JIN') says Pasdar's arraignment is scheduled for Wednesday.

The actor's manager, Will Flaherty, declined comment.

Pasdar plays Nathan Petrelli on NBC's "Heroes." He's married to Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines.
