LOS ANGELES, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- Actor Thomas Dekker has been charged with two misdemeanor drunken-driving offenses stemming from an arrest in California's San Fernando Valley, officials said.

Dekker, 21, is best known for his work on the recently canceled TV series "The Sarah Connor Chronicles."

The actor was arrested Oct. 14 after he allegedly struck a bicyclist with his car.

"He was charged with our standard DUI counts --driving under the influence and driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 or above," Frank Mateljan, Los Angeles city attorney spokesman, told E! News Tuesday.
