Chris Kattan was arrested for DUI early this morning following a crash on a Southern California freeway.

According to the collision report obtained by E! News, the former Saturday Night Live star was traveling on the 101 freeway in Los Angeles when the car he was driving struck a maintenance truck just before 2 a.m. Monday.

The California Highway Patrol apparently received a 911 call that a Mercedes-Benz was weaving all over the roadway at slow speeds, the CHP report states. Kattan allegedly then crossed a cone pattern and struck the Department of Transportation vehicle from behind.

No injuries were reported, and the 43-year-old comedian exited the car on his own.

According to the CHP, Kattan appeared to be impaired and was subsequently taken into custody for driving under the influence and booked at Van Nuys Jail.

Kattan, who was on Saturday Night Live from 1996 to 2003, also starred in such movies as Corky Romano and A Night at the Roxbury.

He later tweeted about the incident, saying all was well, thankfully, and praising the police.
