Chris Klein Extends Alcohol Treatment
Chris Klein is dead serious about turning over a new leaf that he has decided to extend his stay at a Utah rehab facility after completing his first month of treatment, his rep, Jaime Primak, said.
The 31-year-old “American Pie” star voluntarily entered the Cirque Lodge about a week after he was arrested for his second DUI on June 16. A California Highway Patrol flagged him down after he was seen weaving on the Hollywood Freeway. It turned out that his alcohol blood level was three times above the legal limit at the time of his arrest. Prior to the June 16 incident, Klein, who was once engaged to Katie Holmes, was also arrested for a similar offense back in 2005.
Primak said Klein’s treatment in the first 30 days went well but the actor still decided to extend his stay at the facility. “Chris, along with his support team, has decided to extend his treatment. He is doing fantastic and is optimistic about his future. He thanks everyone for their continued support,” Primak said.
