Kevin Hart was arrested on suspicion of DUI on Sunday morning. The actor and comedian has since taken to Twitter to address the allegations.
Hart was pulled over by police after his Mercedes hit a tanker truck on Highway 101. Authorities explained that the comedian was doing over 90 mph in addition to driving erratically. He was later booked for misdemeanor DUI after failing a field sobriety test.
Kevin Hart spent a short amount of time in jail before being released on $5,000. He is expected to show up for court to address the situation on May 5.
The actor briefly discussed his arrest with his Twitter followers on Sunday evening. Although Kevin Hart joked around about the situation, he said that “drinking and driving is not a game or a laughing matter.”
“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,” the comedian wrote on the micro-blogging site.
Hart also discussed his encounter with officers after he was pulled over. While he will plead not guilty to the charges against him, the actor said on Twitter that he freely admitted his intoxication to authorities.
All kidding aside, Kevin Hart admitted that his arrest was extremely serious. He stated that he intends to learn from his recent mistake.
“This is a wake up call for me, I have to be smarter and last night I wasn’t,” he wrote. “Everything happens for a reason.”
Fortunately for Kevin Hart and everyone on Highway 101, no one was injured during the accident. A female passenger who was riding with the comedian at the time was sent home in a taxi.
When the cop asked me to take the sobriety test I said “WHY WASTE OUR TIME…I’M DRUNK MAN” ….. #TrueStory
