Here’s a rare Hollywood story. An actor hit a bicyclist while driving, and he didn’t run off or end up getting arrested for DUI.

Jason Alexander, who we know and love as George Costanza from “Seinfeld,” accidentally hit the 14-year-old cyclist on Tuesday along Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles. Alexander stayed with the boy and waited for police and firefighters to arrive.

The boy wasn’t seriously injured, and Alexander was not cited for wrongdoing.

Alexander’s publicist Ron Hoffman told the Associated Press that the actor acknowledged responsibility and acted properly by waiting for police and paramedics to arrive. He says Alexander is grateful that the boy wasn’t seriously hurt.

Well isn’t that nice.

    Well, that was responsible of him, and the kid wasn’t seriously hurt, but I bet the kid’s parents will sue anyway.

    He did the opposite of what George Costanza would have done – and it was the right thing to do! WOW! That rule of thumb really DOES work.
