LOS AN­GE­LES — “Dukes of Haz­ard” star John Sch­nei­der is free hours af­ter he was jailed for an al­imony dis­pute.

The 58-year-old Sch­nei­der was re­leased from the Los An­ge­les County Jail on Tues­day when his three-day sen­tence was cut short be­cause of over­crowd­ing.

The “Smal­lville” star told Fox News he can­not af­ford the pay­ments to his es­tranged wife Elvira “Elly” Sch­nei­der. She filed for divorce in 2014 af­ter 21 years of mar­riage; they have three adult chil­dren.

Sch­nei­der said he’s “dis­heart­ened” with the sys­tem.

Sch­nei­der still faces the pay­ments and com­mu­nity ser­vice.

He played Bo Duke on “The Dukes of Haz­ard” from 1979 to 1985.
