Former Saturday Night Live cast member Chris Kattan was arrested for a DUI early on Monday morning in Los Angeles. It’s probably a night he would like to forget, but TMZ has the footage of his field sobriety test.
Kattan was driving on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley after 1 a.m. PT when his vehicle was called in to 911 by another driver for “weaving all over the roadway at slow speeds.” His Mercedes then struck a Department of Transportation truck that was doing some overnight construction in a coned-off area.
Fortunately, no one was injured, but his car took a pretty heavy hit into the back of the government vehicle. The video shows a pretty incapacitated Kattan who tried really hard to pass the sobriety test. According to the gossip site, the A Night at the Roxbury actor was booked for a drug DUI versus one for alcohol.
The 43-year-old comedian did take to Twitter to explain his side of the story.
We will see how this pans out, but that video is pretty damaging evidence for the comedian.
Kattan starred on SNL from 1996-2006. He was last seen as a recurring character on The Middle and he has three films set to be released in 2014.
