Chris Kattan Denies Driving Drunk

After posting bail, Kattan addressed the event on Twitter, insisting that he was not drunk, but simply exhausted.

“I just got back from a 15hr flight after touring out of the country. I was exhausted,” he wrote.

Kattan also declared that he had “passed all tests” and was “released without bail” and still in possession of his driver’s license. However, TMZ cites sources that claim that Kattan admitted to being on prescription meds at the time of the crash, and a Tweet from NBC LA, local news, suggested that there was more to the story than what Kattan was publicizing on Twitter.

Kattan was reportedly released on a $15,000 bond five hours after his arrest. The police are currently conducting a chemical test to determine whether or not Kattan was indeed driving under the influence.
