Former SNL actor must pay fine and attend drug and alcohol classes for crash into state DOT vehicle

Actor Chris Kattan was sentenced to three years' probation Thursday for driving under the influence and crashing into the back of a state Department of Transportation vehicle in Encino earlier this year.

The “Saturday Night Live” alum was arrested in February on suspicion of driving under the influence after his car struck the rear of the vehicle about 2 a.m., near where a crew was working. No one was injured in the crash.

In addition to probation, Kattan is required to pay a $500 fine and attend a three-month alcohol education program and 104 Narcotics Anonymous classes, said Frank Mateljan, a spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney's office.

He is also ordered to not drive with any measurable drugs in his system without a valid prescription.

A restitution hearing will be held next month to determine how much Kattan owes the state for damage to the vehicle, Mateljan said.
