Chris Kattan, 43, a comedian and actor who was previously on “Saturday Night Live,” has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving. The actor was driving his 2011 Mercedes Benz when it hit a Department of Transportation vehicle in a work zone on a Southern California freeway, according to a Fox News report on Monday. Fortunately, no one was injured.

There was a 911 call stating that his Mercedes was traveling slowly while weaving from lane to lane just before 2 a.m. on Monday. Kattan was traveling on Los Angeles’ 101 Freeway when the incident occurred. There were reportedly orange cones and arrowed-signs indicating that drivers should avoid the work zone. Kattan did not.

Following the incident and an investigation by officials on the scene, Kattan was taken to jail on a suspicion of driving under the influence.

His other characters included Mr. Peepers, Azrael Abyss, Gay Hitler, Kyle DeMarco from The DeMarco Brothers, Suel Forrester, and half of the Butabi Brothers which he played with Will Ferrell – which the two portrayed in 1998’s “A Night at the Roxbury.”
