Comedian Kevin Hart was arrested on early Sunday for “suspicion” of DUI. The “Think Like A Man” star was pulled over by police officers after speeding down the freeway at 90 mph. He was taken to the nearest police station because he was under the influence of alcohol, Us Weekly reports.
Kevin Hart had a not-so-comic encounter with police officers on early Sunday after driving under the influence of alcohol. Authorities decided to pull him over after noticing that he had long exceeded the speed limit and was driving recklessly on the freeway. According to the police report, Hart was visibly intoxicated when he stepped out of the vehicle; in fact, he was unable to perform the field sobriety test, so officers had no other choice but to take him to jail. He was, later on released for a $5000 bond.
The comedian realized the mistakes he made when he became sober again, the following day. He took to Twitter to apologize fans for his behavior and to explain them that his deeds were, indeed, condemnable. The actor wrote on his Twitter account that he confessed he was drunk when police officers asked him to take the field sobriety test and was, therefore, arrested.
Hart, who often mocked his father’s addiction in his stand-up shows, including the 2011’s “Laugh At My Pain”, further added that his recent incarceration represents a wake-up call for him. In his opinion, driving under the influence is anything but smart, so the actor vowed not to do it again from now on.
Although he had just been released from jail, Kevin Hart was very talkative on Sunday, so he continued to tweet messages on his personal profile. He reminded everyone, including himself, that many people have lost their lives because of DUI, so he should not neglect authorities’ advice in the future. Kevin Hart is not involved at present in any particular project. He featured in many movies, including “Think Like A Man” and “The Five-Year-Engagement” in addition to his stand-up comedy shows. His appearances in the TV show “Modern Family” are his most-recent collaborations.
