'LOST' actor arrested in Waikiki

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays Mr. Eko on ABC’s filmed-in-Hawaii primetime hit series “Lost,” was arrested early Saturday morning for driving without a license and disobeying a police officer. The 39-year-old London-born actor was stopped for a traffic violation at 2:25 a.m. near Kanekapolei St. and Kuhio Ave. He spent about six hours in jail before posting $1,000 bail. He has been scheduled for a Sept. 26 District Court appearance. Akinnuoye-Agbaje is the third “Lost” cast member to be arrested for traffic violations in Hawaii, but several of his colleagues have at least received citations, as recounted by the Star-Bulletin. Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Watros pled guilty following drunk driving arrests in November 2004, and their characters were subsequently killed off in “Lost.” The show’s creators maintain, however, that their DUI arrests had nothing to do with their characters’ fates.
