Kevin Hart, actor and comedian, was arrested for “suspicion” of drunken driving early Sunday morning. Authorities allegedly observed Hart speeding on a freeway at 90 mph in a back Mercedes, weaving through traffic lanes, nearly hitting a nearby truck.
Hart pulled over when officers indicated he was being stopped and officers say Hart was unable to perform the field sobriety tests that are standard when an individual is pulled over and for “suspicion” of drunken driving. Police booked him into jail and held him on a $5,000 bond.
Subsequent to his arrest, Hart later tweeted: “When the cop asked me to take the sobriety test I said ‘WHY WASTE OUR TIME … I’M DRUNK MAN.'”
However, he later tweeted, “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.
