US actor Michael Madsen, best known for his roles in Quentin Tarantino films including "Kill Bill" and "Reservoir Dogs," has been charged with drunk driving, authorities said Wednesday.

The veteran 61-year-old actor was charged with two misdemeanors in connection with a DUI arrest last month in Malibu, where he crashed his Land Rover into a pole, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said in a statement.

It said the incident marked the second time in 10 years that Madsen has been arrested for drunk driving.

The actor, who is scheduled to be arraigned on May 20, appears in Tarantino's latest hotly anticipated film "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood." The film is set to be released in July.
