Actor Chris Klein to Face DUI Charges

Because this isn't the first DUI arrest for "American Pie" actor Chris Klein, his latest set of charges could mean anywhere between three days and one year in jail.

Earlier this month, Klein was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence when he spotted weaving across three lanes of the 101 Freeway at Woodman Avenue in Sherman Oaks. He apparently tested three times over limit.

His arraignment will be on Monday where he will face two misdemeanor DUI charges.

And in case you're wondering, Thomas Kinkade, painter of Christ's love reborn 10 million times over in picturesque cottage form, pleaded not guilty to his recent DUI charges.
