Chris Klein charged with DUI

'American Pie' actor faces up to a year in jail if convicted

Los Angeles prosecutors say they have charged "American Pie" actor Chris Klein with drunken driving.

City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan says Klein faces two misdemeanor driving under the influence charges and will be arraigned on July 9.

Mateljan says Klein faces a minimum of three days in jail and up to a year sentence if convicted because of a prior drunken driving case.

Klein played the character of Chris "Oz" Ostreicher in 1999's "American Pie" and in the 2001 sequel. He was also featured in the 1999 film "Election."

A phone message left for Klein's manager, Cynthia Pette-Dante, was not immediately returned.
The California Highway Patrol arrested Klein on June 16 after he was spotted weaving across a highway in the San Fernando Valley.
