Pasdar"Heroes" TV actor Adrian Pasdar has been arrested on suspicion of driving drunk and veering across lanes on the 405 Freeway in West L.A. in the wee hours Wednesday morning.

Pasdar, 44, was pulled over shortly before 3 a.m. Wednesday, according to a California Highway Patrol report, after officers saw his Ford F-150 truck doing 94 mph on the freeway near Santa Monica Boulevard and straddling two lanes.

The odor of alcohol was detected in the car, the report says. He was given a field sobriety test and was taken to county jail, then released at about 8:30 a.m. on $15,000 bail.

A Feb. 24 court date is currently scheduled for the misdemeanor.

Pasdar, who has been playing Sen. Nathan Petrelli on NBC’s "Heroes" since 2006 (with some recent unfortunate plot twists), married Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines in 2000. They have homes in L.A. and in Lubbock, Texas.
