Soap actor Kanan charged with DUI


Sean Kanan, who appeared in the daytime soap operas "General Hospital" and "The Bold and the Beautiful," has been charged with driving under the influence.

Kanan was arrested Aug. 18. He faces charges of misdemeanor DUI and driving with a blood-alcohol level above the state limit of .08%, city attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan said Wednesday.

Details of his arrest weren't released. An after-hours call to Kanan's agent wasn't returned.

He was scheduled to appear in court Monday, Mateljan said.

Kanan played Ralph Macchio's nemesis in the 1989 movie "The Karate Kid, Part III."

Kirsten Storms, who plays Maxie Jones on ABC's "General Hospital" and was Belle Black on NBC's "Days of Our Lives," was arrested Friday in Culver City for investigation of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Storms voices the snippy cheerleader Bonnie Rockwaller in the animated Disney TV series "Kim Possible."
