Comedic actor Chris Kattan was arrested in the early morning hours Monday on suspicion of DUI after allegedly hitting a Caltrans truck on the 101 Freeway in Encino, L.A. Now reports.
The "Saturday Night Live" and "A Night at the Roxbury" alum, 43, drove up on some Department of Transportation guardrail work on the westbound 101 near Balboa Boulevard around 2 a.m. Though Caltrans had a lane closed with cones, flashing arrows and signs, Kattan crossed the cones in his Mercedes and whacked into the back of a work truck inside the closed-off area, California Highway Patrol Officer Monica Posada told L.A. Now.
The truck was empty, and nobody was hurt.
Posada said that before the incident authorities had received a 911 call reporting the Mercedes "weaving all over the roadway at slow speeds." Video above appears to show the actor doing poorly on a field sobriety test.
Kattan allegedly told officers he was on prescription medication, according to TMZ sources.
The 5-foot-8, 140-pound actor was booked shortly after 5 a.m. Bail was set at $15,000, and a court date was inked for March 3, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's database.
