Say it ain’t so, Mango! The former ‘Saturday Night Live’ star got himself into trouble on Feb. 10 in California, striking a vehicle and then admitting to police officers that he was driving under the influence of prescription meds.
Chris Kattan Arrested For DUI
Chris, who gave life to popular Saturday Night Live characters like Mr. Peepers and Doug Butabi from A Night at the Roxbury, was pulled over and arrested after he was caught on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley “weaving all over the roadway at slow speeds.” He also reportedly crossed into an area that was coned off and struck a Dept. of Transportation vehicle from behind.
After being pulled over, Chris admitted to the authorities that he was under the influence of prescription medication, according to TMZ.
Chris Kattan: What He Has In Common With Justin Bieber & Lamar Odom
Chris joins an elite (well, not really) club of celebrities who have notched DUIs that includes Justin Bieber, who was arrested for DUI and drag racing in Miami on Jan. 23, Lamar Odom, Farrah Abraham, and Jim Toth, the husband of Reese Witherspoon, who managed to get herself arrested during the incident for disorderly conduct.
And there are many more where those came from. This is getting downright ridiculous — by driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol (in Chris’ case it was just drugs), these stars are not only endangering themselves, but endangering everyone else on the road.
Somehow though, we don’t think Mr. Peepers getting nabbed is going to make any celeb think twice before getting behind the wheel.
