On Friday (28Feb14), prosecutors filed the Dui charge against the actor and he is due to appear in court on Monday (03Mar14), according to

If convicted, he could face up to six months behind bars and a $1,000 (£625) fine.

Kattan spoke out shortly after he was released from jail and blamed exhaustion for his erratic behaviour.

Taking to his page, he wrote, "I just got back from a 15hr (hour) flight after touring out of the country. I was exhausted. The Police were so kind. I'm lucky nobody was hurt."
