RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Joshua Jackson, who plays Pacey on the WB series Dawson's Creek, was arrested and charged with drunkenly assaulting a
security guard at a hockey game.

The 24-year-old actor was arrested Saturday night at a game between the
Carolina Hurricanes and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

He's scheduled to appear in court on the misdemeanor charge on Dec. 4.

Arrest warrants allege that Jackson grabbed 40-year-old guard Drew Grissom
around the neck and struck him.

In jail, tests showed his blood alcohol content registered 0.14.

He posted $1,000 bail early Sunday and left.

Reached on his cell phone Sunday, Jackson declined to comment to The News
& Observer
of Raleigh.

The native of Vancouver, British Columbia, appeared in the 'Mighty Ducks'
series of hockey movies before joining the cast of the teen-oriented Dawson's
Creek
, which films in Wilmington.
