Mega comedian Kevin Hart is receiving some less-than-friendly attention as reports now flood the Internet about him being arrested in Los Angeles over the weekend on a DUI charge.
According to the latest coverage, the incident went down Sunday (April 14) morning.
Los Angeles traffic police arrested the stand-up comic on “suspicion” of drunken driving early Sunday. They observed him speeding down a freeway at 90 mph in his black Mercedes, weaving across traffic lanes and almost running into a gas tanker truck, the California Highway Patrol said in a statement. When patrol officers pursued him, he took an off ramp and pulled over, police said. (CNN)
Hart was then given a sobriety test, which he failed, and found himself in handcuffs.
Kevin Hart isn’t laughing about this. The California Highway Patrol confirms to E! News that the comedian was arrested under suspicion of DUI around 4:30 a.m. Sunday after officers spotted Hart driving erratically at a high rate of speed and witnessed him almost colliding with a gas tanker truck. He was pulled over after failing a field sobriety test and was arrested. (Today)
Shortly after his arrest, the comedian posted bail and escaped the jail scene.
Hart was taken into custody thereafter. By 6 am he was given a DUI misdemeanor charge. The actor posted a $5000 bond. By Sunday morning, Hart was released. Reports claim that Hart allegedly was given a second charge as well. (LA Late)
Rather than stay mum, he made sure to hop onto Twitter page to spill his guts on what went down.
“I did 6,000 push ups & 13,000 sit ups while I was in the pin….shout out to my celly “Mark” we exchanged war stories LMFAO”
“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 sh*t this!”
“This is a wake up call for me, I have to be smarter & last night I wasn’t….everything happens for a reason….” (Kevin Hart’s Twitter)
