California DUI criminal defense attorneys just learned that "American Pie" actor Chris Klein has been arrested for allegedly being DUI or drunk driving in Los Angeles County. He was stopped in the San Fernando Valley after California DUI officers spotted him weaving across lanes on the westbound Hollywood Freeway. Because he was booked for California DUI at the Lost Angeles Police Department's Van Nuys station, and not the main Los Angeles County Jail, he was soon let go on his OR.
A second California DUI conviction carries 96 hours to 1 year in jail. Also attendance at 18-30 month alcohol/drug program, a fine of $390 to $1,000 plus substantial, mandatory penalty assessments, 96 hours to 1 year in jail, installation of ignition interlock (IID) device for up to 3 years, and 2 year license suspension, with a possible license restriction to and from work, during work and to and from DUI program after 1 year of suspension and completion of DUI program. However, your license shall be suspended if the offense occurred in a vehicle which requires a class 1, 2, A or B license.
His first DUI was five years ago in San Diego County court. His California DUI criminal defense lawyer was unavailable for comment.
