With his career not really going anywhere since he shot to fame in American Pie, actor (and former Katie Holmes fiancée) Chris Klein was arrested in the wee hours of Wednesday in Los Angeles. He was pulled over by cops on the freeway on suspicion of driving under the influence, says TMZ. He failed a sobriety test and was promptly arrested. The 31-year-old actor has issues with alcohol, as he was arrested and charged with two misdemeanor DUI counts in 2005 after his blood alcohol level far exceeded California's legal limit. He plead guilty and was sentenced to five years probation and a $1800 fine. Looks like there might be heftier probation terms and a bigger fine in Klein’s future.
Should celeb repeat offenders have bigger punishments for such reckless behavior, since the are supposedly role models and in the public eye and can help deter the Regular Joes from engaging in the same behavior if they see stricter consequences?
