Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- "American Pie" actor Chris Klein was arrested for suspicion of drunk driving early Wednesday, according to a California Highway Patrol spokesman.

Klein's vehicle was "observed weaving from the #3 lane into the #2 and #4 lane" on the Ventura Freeway in Sherman Oaks, California at 3:15 a.m. PT, a news release from the California Highway Patrol said.

Klein, 31, failed a sobriety test, said Officer Francisco Villalobos.

He was released on his "own recognizance" without being required to post bail, the CHP statement said.

Klein's manager has not responded to requests for comment.

He is best known for his 1999 role as Chris "Oz" Ostreicher, which he also played in "American Pie" and the 2001 sequel "American Pie 2."
