RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Joshua Jackson (news), who plays Pacey on the WB series "Dawson's Creek (news - Y! TV)," 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.

Also arrested was Terry Dean Long of Wilmington, a production worker on the series, who told a magistrate he jumped into the fight with Jackson.

Long, 38, was charged with being intoxicated and disruptive and possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia, arrest warrants show. He posted bail and left the jail Sunday morning.
