Daniel Dae Kim, who stars as Jin-Soo Kwon on ABC's hit TV series "Lost," was arrested early this morning for allegedly driving drunk.

Details of his DUI arrest haven't been released yet, but police said he was arrested around 3 a.m. He was booked at the Honolulu Police station downtown, posted bail and was released at 5:05 a.m.

Kim didn't say anything as he left the station while being ushered by two police officers to a mini van that was waiting for him just outside the police station's receiving area.

Wearing a polo shirt, kaki shorts and his hair growing out, Kim kept his head down as he brushed past media, stepping into the front passenger's side of the mini van, which quickly whisked him away.

Kim's arrest isn't the first DUI or run in with police for stars of the hit TV series.

Some of the other notable brushes with the law include former cast members Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros both being arrested for drunk driving on Dec. 1, 2005 when police spotted their vehicles weaving along Pali Highway.

Both pleaded guilty, and both were gone from the show by season's end.

On Sept. 2, 2006, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ("Mr. Eko") was arrested for disobeying a police officer and driving without a license. The charges were later dropped when Akinnuoye-Agbaje provided proof that he possessed a license. He he was killed off the show by a smoke-monster in the first half of that season.
