TMZ has learned 44-year-old Pasdar was arrested at 2:59 AM after cops clocked him going more than 90 mph on the 405 Freeway in L.A. We're told cops also noticed Pasdar was "failing to maintain his lane."

According to the police report, when cops approached Pasdar's ride, they detected the odor of alcohol -- and decided to give him a field sobriety test. Pasdar was eventually placed under arrest for suspicion of DUI.

Pasdar -- who is married to Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines -- was taken to a nearby jail, where he was booked and placed behind bars. He's listed at 5'10" and 175 lbs.

His bail was set at $15,000 -- we're told the bail amount was so high because the actor refused to take a breathalyzer.

This tard should lose his license and have to pay a big big big donation to Mother Against Drunk Driving for glamorizing drinkin and driving.

The guy should be so lucky to be married to a rich lady and be on tv, and so he says thanks by gettin drunk and driving his rocket car.

FOR SHAME!

What did Pasdar do, other than refuse a breathalyzer, upon his arrest and what were his reasons for not wanting to take the sobriety test? As a DUI attorney, I know that you can get in more trouble for disobeying an officer of the law and make your punishment worse for your DUI offense. Why do people continue to think they can out-smart the law?
