On Feb. 10 Hollywood Gossip reports that Chris Kattan of "Saturday Night Live" fame was arrested for a DUI after he crashed his black Mercedes through a closed off area and into a parked Department of Transportation vehicle early this morning.

The arresting officer says that he failed all field sobriety tests, but a chemical test done on the scene should be able to tell what the substance in his system was. Kattan suffered from a bloody nose, but luckily there was nobody in the other vehicle that he rear-ended.

Police were notified of the situation when another motorist called in a car swerving at slow speeds on the 101 to San Fernado Valley. The arresting officer says that it could have been a lot worse. Chris Kattan was taken to the Van Nuys jail where he was booked for driving under the influence of prescription drugs, however, he wasn't drunk.

He was later released on his own recognizance with his license and car. He later tweeted;

"Those concerned or just adding gossip: I'm fine, passed all tests, released without bail, have drivers license, cop offered to drive me home."
