The 21 year old actor, who portrayed John Connor on the TV series "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles," was arrested on October 14 on suspicion of felony DUI and causing bodily harm, according police.
Dekker, who was driving a 2005 Toyota Matrix, is accused of striking a 17-year-old boy who was trying to ride his bicycle past a freeway on-ramp. The teen, who was riding his bike in a crosswalk, was ejected and fell onto the pavement, suffering minor injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The cyclist was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Dekker was charged last week with one count each of driving under the influence and driving under the influence with a blood-alcohol content of .08 or above, according to city attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan.
Dekker was booked into Van Nuys jail and later released on $100,000 bail. His arraignment is set for Friday in Van Nuys.
Dekker has also appeared on the TV shows "Heroes," "7th Heaven" and "House."
