LOS ANGELES — Police say "Seinfeld" actor Jason Alexander won't be cited after striking a 14-year-old bicyclist while driving in Los Angeles.

The boy suffered minor injuries.

Los Angeles police spokeswoman Norma Eisenman says Alexander hit the bicyclist at about 7:15 a.m. Tuesday in the Mid-City area.

Eisenman says the boy was in stable condition when he was taken to a hospital for examination. She had no additional details about the accident but said Alexander wasn't cited.

Alexander played neurotic neighbor George Costanza on "Seinfeld."

His publicist, Ron Hofmann, says Alexander acted responsibly by waiting for police and paramedics to arrive. He says Alexander is grateful that the boy wasn't seriously hurt.
