Chris Klein Checks Into Rehab After Second DUI-Related Arrest

Chris-Klein Chris Klein is voluntarily checking into the rehab facility Cirque Lodge in Utah for the next month (or longer) after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Los Angeles on June 16th.

I'd like to say this was surprising news, but I don't think anyone will be shocked that the former star of American Pie and Election has been suffering from an addiction problem for years. 

Chris-Klein-2010

This latest spot of legal trouble was Klein's second run-in with the law. He was first arrested for drunk driving back in 2005, not long after he and Katie Holmes announced they were breaking off their engagement after being a couple for five years.  This time around, the po-po picked him up after spotting his car weaving on an LA freeway.

People Magazine got the exclusive statement from Klein's rep, Jaime Primak:

"After recent events, Chris was forced to take a clear look at a problem he has been trying to deal with himself for years. He understands now that he can not beat this disease alone. He thanks everyone for their support as he takes all the necessary steps to deal with his addiction and asks for privacy while doing so."

I will respect his privacy by wishing him a speedy recovery and a lifetime of iron-clad willpower fueled by memories of his Mamma Mia! audition debacle that became a viral sensation on YouTube.
