“Saturday Night Live” alum Chris Kattan was arrested for driving under the influence early Monday morning, a California Highway Patrol spokesman told TheWrap.

The 43-year-old actor, most famous for his role alongside Will Ferrell in “A Night at the Roxbury,” was arrested at 2:22 a.m. after his Mercedes collided with a Department of Transportation vehicle on the 101 Freeway near Van Nuys where a crew was busy working on guard rail repair.

Kattan was not, however, under the influence of alcohol, as authorities believe he was under the influence of prescription drugs.

The actor, whose recent credits include a regular role on ABC sitcom “The Middle” between 2009 and 2012, sustained minor injuries during the collision.

Kattan was a regular cast member on “SNL” between 1996 and 2006.
