TAMPA -- Actor Joseph Gannascoli has been arrested on a DUI charge in Tampa.

Jail records show the 51-year-old Gannascoli was arrested by the Tampa Police Department early Friday morning. He has posted $500 bond and was expected to be released from Hillsborough County jail later Friday. It is unclear if he already has an attorney.

Gannascoli, of East Rockaway, N.Y., played the character Vito Spatafore on the HBO drama "The Sopranos."
