Avery Brooks, who appeared on Star Trek: Seep Space Nine, was arrested and charged with DUI in Connecticut and is set to be arranged in state court in Norwalk next week, the Daily Mail reports.

Avery Brooks, 63, played Capt. Benjamin Sisko on the 1990s television series and had the role of Hawk on Spenser: For Hire in the 1980s.

He is set to be arraigned in state court in Norwalk next week in connection with his arrest last weekend in Wilton, a wealthy suburb about 50 miles northeast of Manhattan.

Local police say they pulled over the Princeton, N.J., resident shortly after 10 p.m. Sunday after receiving a complaint about his driving.

It’s not clear if the actor has a lawyer. He’s due in court on Feb. 9.

The star, who also appeared in the Oscar-nominated movie American History X, has three children with his wife of 36 years, Vicki Lenora.

Brooks was the African-American captain to lead a Star Trek series when he landed the role in 1993.
