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
