Hasselhoff arrested on suspicion of DUI

David Hasselhoff was arrested over the weekend on suspicion on driving while intoxicated, police said Monday.

The former “Baywatch” star was arrested late Saturday night on Ventura Boulevard in the Encino section of the San Fernando Valley, said Officer Sara Faden, a police spokeswoman. He was released the next morning.

No further details were immediately available.

In 2002, Hasselhoff checked himself into the Betty Ford Center for treatment of alcoholism.

The 51-year-old actor is best known for portraying lifeguard Mitch Buchannon in the long-running “Baywatch” TV series. He also starred in the 1980s television show “Knight Rider.”
