"Saturday Night Live" alum Chris Kattan was arrested on suspicion of DUI early Monday, Feb. 10, in California.

Kattan was arrested after he crashed into a Department of Transportation truck around 2 a.m. on the 101 Freeway in Encino, CBSLA reported via the California Highway Patrol. The maintenance vehicle had been parked on the shoulder for work.

The work site was marked with orange cones, signs and flashing arrows, according to KNBC. Kattan's 2011 Mercedes crossed the cones and slammed into the back of the maintenance truck, damaging the front end of his vehicle as well as the work crew's truck. No major injuries were reported.

Prior to the accident, a woman called 911 to report a “Mercedes ... weaving all over the roadway at slow speeds," according to CBSLA.

Kattan allegedly confessed to being on prescription medication, TMZ reported.

The 43-year-old actor is most famous for his time on "SNL," as well as for comedic roles in films like "A Night at the Roxbury." His IMDb profile indicates he has multiple films in post-production.
