Actor David Hasselhoff was arrested over the weekend for investigation of driving while intoxicated, police said Monday.

The former "Baywatch" (search) star was arrested around 11:20 p.m. Saturday along the 17000 block of Ventura Boulevard in Los Angeles' Encino section, 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 (search) for treatment of alcoholism.

The 51-year-old actor is best known for portraying lifeguard Mitch Buchannon in the long-running "Baywatch" TV series.
