After spending the last 30 days drying out at the Cirque Lodge rehab center in Park City, Utah, the American Pie guy was scheduled to appear in a Los Angeles courtroom today to be arraigned for two misdemeanor DUI counts.
Instead, Klein waived his right to an arraignment and dispatched his high-profile attorney, Blair Berk, to enter a pair of not-guilty pleas on his behalf.
But will that keep him out of jail?
Things aren't looking too good for the actor.
Judge Rebecca Omens ordered Klein to show in person at his preliminary hearing scheduled for Aug. 23. She also prohibited him from drinking or possessing any alcoholic beverages.
Klein's blood-alcohol level was allegedly almost three times the legal limit.
He's trying everything possible to avoid a second black mark on his record.
Because of the earlier case, if convicted on the new charges Klein would face a minimum mandatory sentence of four days in the clink and a maximum of a year in jail.
