Saturday Night Live alum Chris Kattan is in a bit of trouble. Don’t worry: he didn’t say anything offensive on stage or on TV. The Corky Roman star was arrested on suspicion of DUI early Monday, Feb. 10, in California. He was arrested after allegedly crashing into a Department of Transportation truck around 2am on the 101 Freeway in Encino. His 2011 Mercedes seemingly ignored the orange cones and flashing arrows alerting drivers of the parked truck. Upon arrest, Kattan allegedly confessed to being on prescription medication. A woman had earlier called 911 to report a car similar to Kattan’s “weaving all over the roadway at slow speeds.”

Kattan explained, “I just got back from a 15 hour flight after touring out of the country. I was exhausted.” No injuries were reported.
