'Star Trek' Star

Popped for DUI

"Star Trek" star Avery Brooks was busted for DUI ... TMZ has learned.

63-year-old Brooks -- who played Benjamin Sisko on "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" -- was arrested Sunday in Wilton, Connecticut after someone complained he was driving erratically.

Cops pulled Brooks over and after a sobriety test he was arrested for DUI.

If convicted, Brooks could get 6 months in the pokey, although in most states first-time offenders end up with probation -- and as far as we know Brooks has no priors.

A rep for Brooks has no comment.

I haven't heard anything about Avery Brooks in a long time. I had completely forgotten about him. Out of sight, out of mind. I did like him on Spencer for hire tho.

Maybe he was celebrating the prophets finally releasing him from the celestial temple. I had no idea he made it back out of the worm hole until I saw this.

He was on DS9. It wasn't the Romulan Ale that got him. It was the Ferengie "Slug-O-Cola".

I honestly bet you he wasn't even drunk. Have you seen the guy on interviews lately? He's borderline nuts. I say he was probably just talking to himself and rambling on about hearing the muuuusic in his head and the cop had to take him in. Either that or he thought the cop was a shapeshifter and tried to resist.

I am a fan of his, and I hope he will get himself together. I love to hear him speak and he has such a gorgeous singing voice. I certainly hope he will continue acting or teaching, because he is good at both.
