    This isn't the way to put one over on the Dominion.

    Avery Brooks, best known for playing Commander-turned-Captain Benjamin Sisko on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, was arrested last night in Connecticut on suspicion of driving under the influence.

    The 63-year-old actor was picked up after police received a complaint of a person driving erratically nera the intersection of Belden Hill and Seir Hill Road, the Wilton Police Department confirms to E! News.

    So, was Brooks beamed right into custody?

    Yes, but he was released after being booked and a court date was set for Feb. 9.

    Before starring on Deep Space Nine for all of its seven seasons, Brooks played Hawk on Spenser: For Hire and in subsequent Spenser TV movies (and in a short-lived spinoff in 1989), and most recently voiced Sisko for the Star Trek: Legacy video game.
