Kevin Hart On DUI Arrest: “This Is A Wake Up Call”
Real Husbands of Hollywood star Kevin Hart has taken to Twitter to make light of his weekend arrest for “suspicion” of drunken driving. A California Highway Patrol officer reportedly spotted the actor driving 98 mph in a black Mercedes while weaving through traffic and almost running into a gas truck early Sunday morning.
“Mr. Hart had objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform the field sobriety tests,” a statement from the CHP reads. Hart taken into custody, but released on a $5,000 bond later in the day.
Hart initially seemed to find humor in his arrest, joking on Twitter after getting out of jail about the mishap:
“I did 6,000 push ups and 13,000 sit ups while I was in the pin … shout out to my celly “Mark” we exchanged war stories LMFAO.”
Apparently the comedian realized drinking while driving isn’t exactly the funniest thing in the world, so he returned to Twitter to post a more serious message later in the day.
“On some real sh*t … drinking and driving is not a game or a laughing matter. People have lost lives because of stupid sh*t [like] this! This is a wake up call for me, I have to be smarter and last night I wasn’t … everything happens for a reason.”
