'Heroes' Star Charged with DUI

Actor Adrian Pasdar, best known as Nathan Petrelli on NBC's Heroes, has been officially charged with DUI. According to TMZ:
The 44-year-old actor -- who's married to Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines -- was initially pulled over on January 27 after cops say they clocked him going 90 MPH on the 405 Freeway. After conducting a field sobriety test, cops eventually arrested Pasdar and held him on $15,000 bail. Pasdar is due back in court on February 24 and faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
