Former Dallas star Ken Kercheval has been arrested in Clinton, Indiana, for drunk driving. The 71-year-old star, who played Cliff Barnes, JR Ewing's rival in the hit 1980s TV series, was arrested Wednesday, after a routine traffic stop. Kercheval was charged with operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol level that registered .19 per cent by the time he was tested at the county jail, according to the National Enquirer. He was released the following morning, after posting $10,000 bail. The actor lives in Granada Hills, California, but owns a home in Indiana that he inherited from his mother. Kercheval was in town attending the Little Italy festival over the Labor Day weekend.
