After being caught while driving under the influence for the second time, Chris Klein, best known for his American Pie role, has checked himself into rehab. The actor will stay for a 30 day treatment in an alcohol addiction program based in Utah, and plans to stay longer if he doesn’t feel he’s ready to leave. A rep for Klein has made a statement about his stint in rehab:

“After recent events, Chris was forced to take a clear look at a problem he has been trying to deal with himself for years. He understands now that he can not beat this disease alone, he thanks everyone for their support as he takes all the necessary steps to deal with his addiction and asks for privacy while doing so.”

Klein was caught and arrested on suspicion of drunk driving last Wednesday in Los Angeles.
