LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say former "Saturday Night Live" star Chris Kattan has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after his Mercedes struck a Department of Transportation vehicle on a Southern California freeway.

The California Highway Patrol says the Mercedes was seen weaving in and out of lanes shortly before 2 a.m. local time Monday on the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles.

The CHP says Kattan drove into a vehicle that belonged to a crew conducting maintenance on a guardrail. No injuries are reported.

The 43-year-old Kattan was jailed on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Kattan, who was on 'SNL' from 1996 to 2003, was best known for the shirtless-dancer character Mango. He also starred alongside Will Ferrell in the 1998 film "A Night at the Roxbury."
