Avery Brooks is scheduled to be arraigned in state court in Norwalk next week for his arrest last weekend in Wilton, a suburb about 50 miles northeast of Manhattan.
Brooks played Capt. Benjamin Sisko on the 1990s "Star Trek" series and had the role of Hawk on "Spenser: For Hire" in the 1980s.
Authorities say they pulled over the 63-year-old actor at about 10 p.m. on Sunday after receiving a complaint about his driving.
He is due in court Feb. 9.
