Actor Adrian Pasdar, of US TV series Heroes, has been arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of drink driving.

According to highway patrol officers, the 44-year-old was pulled over before dawn on Wednesday after being spotted speeding on a Los Angeles freeway.

He was later released on a $15,000 (£9,222) bail, authorities said.

Pasdar, who plays flying senator Nathan Petrelli in the superhero-based series, has two children with Natalie Maines, lead singer of the Dixie Chicks.

According to a California Highway Patrol report, Pasdar was pulled over shortly before 0300 local time on Wednesday after officers saw his truck doing 94 mph and straddling two lanes.

"Upon contacting Pasdar, the officers noticed an odor [sic] of alcoholic beverage," the report continued.

Neither the actor nor his representatives have commented on his arrest.
