LOS ANGELES, Aug. 18 (UPI) -- Teen actor Haley Joel Osment has been charged with misdemeanor drunken driving after an automobile accident in California.

Osment, 18, is scheduled to be arraigned Sept. 19 in Glendale Superior Court where if convicted he could be sentenced to six months in jail, The Los Angeles Times reported Friday.
