Los Angeles: `Baywatch` heartthrob David Hasselhoff is known for his wild antics and he caused a traffic jam with his latest stunt, standing on a busy overpass in Los Angeles and waving frantically at the passing traffic.

The 58-year-old actor stood over one of LA`s busiest freeways, holding his hands up in the air and gesturing to oncoming motorists, reported a website.

In a bizarre twist, country singer LeAnn Rimes was driving past on the freeway and saw the `Knight Rider` star putting on his show.

She immediately tweeted, "Omg, David Hasselhoff is standing on a freeway overpass in LA waving to people(sic)."

She added, "Seriously!!! Can someone explain? Laughing so hard I`m crying right now."

The former `America`s Got Talent` judge confirmed his antics minutes later tweeting back, "It was me on the overpass. I like to make people`s commute a littler more fun! Give my love to Eddie."

Evidently proud of his antics he hit Twitter again on Friday morning writing, "So what an exciting day! Lots of tweets, decided I was a pine tree and got spotted waving to traffic by the 101 by Lean Rimes."

The actor, nicknamed `The Hoff`, has battled drug and alcohol addiction in the past and had hit headlines in 2007 after a home made video of him leaked online.

The video which was shot by his daughter, showed a shirtless and drunk Hasselhoff trying to eat a cheeseburger.
