It’s rare for celebrities arrested for DUI to own up to their mistakes, but Kevin Hart surprised us when he admitted that he was actually drunk.
The California Highway Patrol confirms the comedian was arrested under suspicion of DUI around 4:30 a.m. after officers spotted Hart driving erratically at a high rate of speed and witnessed him almost colliding with a gas tanker truck.
Police then pulled Hart over, failed a field sobriety test and was arrested. He was held at Van Nuys jail on $5,000 bond and was released shortly.
Kevin Hart then took to his Twitter to own up to his mistake. He said: “I’m officially a thug, I spent 6hrs in jail last night…I got pulled over 3blocks from my house by a dick head cop. This cop was the worst, he knew who I was & wanted to make a example out of me….”
Hart continued, “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”
Kidding aside, Kevin Hart did warn others not to drink and drive. He tweeted: “On some real shit….drinking & driving is not a game or a laughing matter. People have lost lives because of stupid s**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….”
