Chris Klein Checks Into Rehab
The American Pie actor begins his journey to recovery.
After being arrested twice for alcohol related incidents, Chris Klein has voluntarily checked himself into rehab.
Last week the American Pie actor, and former fiancé of Katie Holmes, was seen weaving westbound on the Hollywood Freeway and pulled over. His blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit .08.
This was not his first arrest involving his operating an automobile while inebriated. He was also detained in San Diego for drunk driving in 2005.
“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,” his rep Jaime Primak told People. “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.”
The actor has committed to a 30-day alcohol addiction program at the Cirque Lodge in Utah. If at the end of his 30 days more treatment is deemed necessary he will stay longer. (People)
