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. Monday on the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles.

The CHP says Kattan drove into a DOT 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 DUI.

Kattan, who was on `SNL' from 1996 to 2003, was best known for the character Mango.

He also starred alongside Will Ferrell in the 1998 film "A Night at the Roxbury."

A call to Kattan's agent wasn't immediately returned.
