Chris Kattan was high on drugs when he crashed his Mercedes into a truck on the 101 Freeway earlier this month ... according to the LA. City Attorney,  who just nailed the comedian with a DUI charge.

A rep for the City Attorney's office tells TMZ, prosecutors filed one count of Driving under the Influence of Drugs, which carries a maximum penalty of 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine for a first offense.

As we reported, Chris' car was seen weaving on the freeway early on Feb. 10 ... before careening into a coned area and slamming into a parked Dept. of Transportation truck, destroying his car in the process.

According to sources, Kattan -- who was not injured -- appeared out of it and told cops he had taken Rx pills before the crash. He was arrested on the scene.

Kattan will be in court for arraignment March 3.

All he has to do is go to court and tell them he accidently took the wrong pills and that his father was Robert Kennedy and was assassinated - charges dropped.

Celebrities get off too easily. Courts make it way harder for the felons that have actually learned their lessons. This world is not fair. Equal rights my ass!
