Cops: Chris Klein Was WASTED on the 101

6/16/2010 2:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Klein wasn't just drunk when he was popped for DUI early this morning, according to law enforcement sources ... his blood alcohol level was almost THREE TIMES the legal limit.

We're told Klein blew well over a .20 when he was arrested on the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles this morning -- his second DUI bust in the last 6 years.  The legal limit in California is .08.

As we previously reported, Klein wasn't the only passenger in his car -- cops found a dog inside the vehicle.  The dog was later retrieved by a friend of Klein's.

Klein's reps have not returned our calls.

UPDATE: Klein's bail has been set at $25,000

Maybe he has too may Thetans in his system. Katie could help purge those for him now that the prophet Cruise has shown her the way.

I have always liked Chris as an actor, but I also feel sorry for him in reguards of what Katie Holmes did to him. She was engaged to Chris and dumped him the second Tom Cruise looked at her. They had been together for a few years and made a great couple, but Katie sold out to Hollywood and hurt Chris a lot.
I wonder if his drinking problem has to do with his broken heart. I wouldn't doubt it. Thanks a lot Katie Ho.

I hope he gets the same easy treatment Lindsay is getting. After all, he was busted on a DUI only, and it's his second one in a number of years. Lindsay was picked up on a DUI but the cops also found cocaine in her car, and she tested positive for it. Then, she did it again, another DUI, and more offenses to the court system. She needs to be put away, and Chris needs to stop drinking and driving, or stop drinking altogether, or stop driving altogether. I don't want him to become another Nick Nolte.

Maybe he is drinking so much because he has been paid off to ignore that he has a daughter with a certain actress? Would you be emotionally stable? Seriously, you can see how much she looks like him just with this profile shot. I would LOVE to know the truth about that whole situation.

Misstigerslover....so glad you have provided some sort of reason this person was driving on the same highway my daughter drives on; all because of Katie Holmes....Well Judge, I guess we should just let him go and keep praying we are NOT with back luck the time he is feeling really low about Katie. As for you...exactly the reason our society sucks...oh, should I also pray he does RAPE some innocent woman? All because of what Katie Holmes did to him?

1) Take away his driving license permanently.
2) Give him a fine.
3) Put him behind bars for quite a while.

There is no excuse for drinking and driving, especially when you make lots of money and have transportation available to you. It's so arrogant. When you do it repeatedly, you need to get some jail time. He can go into rehab when he gets out of jail.
