PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Actor Matthew Fox, star of the television series "Lost," has been charged with drunken driving in Oregon.

Police in Bend say the 45-year-old who lives in the Central Oregon city was stopped early Friday after an officer noticed a motorist failing to signal properly or stay within a lane of traffic.

During the stop, the officer decided Fox was driving under the influence and took him to the Deschutes (duh-SHOOTS') County Jail.

Fox was released Friday after he was booked into custody. He has a court appearance scheduled for June 17.

The authorities would not release the police report or any additional information.

Fox's lawyer did not return a call seeking comment.
