ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. -- Actor Will Patton, of the movies "Remember the Titans" and "Armageddon" and the current TNT series "Falling Skies," has been charged with driving under the influence in his native South Carolina.

Court records show that the 60-year-old Patton was stopped on the Isle of Palms on Tuesday night.

He was charged with first offense driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content of less than 0.10. The legal limit for driving is 0.08.

Court documents show he was released Wednesday on a $997 personal recognizance bond. Patton is a native of nearby Charleston.

Isle of Palms police said an incident report would be available later Thursday.
