Sunday, April 14th, comedian and actor Kevin Hart was arrested on suspicion of DUI.
The California Highway Patrol said that the police pulled over Kevin Hart after he was driving down a freeway at 90 mph in his black Mercedes vehicle, weaving from traffic lane to traffic lane and almost crashing into a gas tanker truck.
“Mr. Hart had objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform the field sobriety tests,” the statement read.
The police booked him into jail, holding him on a $5,000 bond. Even if while staying in jail he tweeted messages full of rage regarding the incident, after 6 hours in prison he realized the seriousness of the situation. Although this seems to be his first run-in with the law, the “This Is The End” actor has previously talked about his father’s embarrassing behavior due to a drug addiction.
“This is a wake up call for me, I have to be smarter & last night I wasn’t … everything happens for a reason. Drinking & driving is not a game or a laughing matter. People have lost lives because of stupid … this!,” he said on his verified Twitter account.
