Comedian Kevin Hart was arrested this weekend on suspicion of DUI.
According to a TMZ report, the comedian was stopped by the California Highway Patrol early on Sunday morning. The CHP claims that Hart was driving erratically and over the speed limit on the 101 Freeway in Los Angeles. The report also states that Hart was “unable to perform field sobriety tests.”
Though most celebrities prefer to remain publicly silent about their arrests, or brush them aside as being inaccurately reported in the media, Hart has chosen to confront his DUI arrest head-on. Using his Twitter feed, Hart recalled his short stay in jail and even recounted his own version of the arrest, which includes him admitting to the CHP officer who pulled him over that he was drunk. He also stated that the incident is a “wake up call” for him and admitted that drinking & driving is “stupid.”
When the cop asked me to take the sobriety test I said “WHY WASTE OUR TIME…I’M DRUNK MAN” ….. #TrueStory
On some real shit….drinking & driving is not a game or a laughing matter. People have lost lives because of stupid shit this!
This is a wake up call for me, I have to be smarter & last night I wasn’t….everything happens for a reason….
