A DUI arrest is no laughing matter, and Kevin Hart is well aware of that — sorta.
In the early morning hours on April 14, the stand-up comedian was arrested for an alleged DUI.
The 32-year-old actor was reportedly driving erratically at very high speeds and almost collided with a gas tanker truck. He was pulled over and arrested after failing a sobriety test – and now he’s ready to talk about it.
“I’m officially a thug, I spent 6hrs in jail last night…I got pulled over 3blocks from my house by a d—k head cop,” he tweeted. “This cop was the worst, he knew who I was & wanted to make an example out of me…”
According to E! News, Kevin was released from Van Nuys jail where he was held on a $5,000 bond.
He continued in his Twitter rant, “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.”
The Think Like a Man star later deleted those tweets and opted for a more remorseful response.
“On some real s—t….drinking & driving is not a game or a laughing matter,” he wrote. “People have lost lives because of stupid shit like this! This is a wake up call for me, I have to be smarter & last night I wasn’t…everything happens for a reason…”
Hopefully Kevin holds true to those words – and thinks twice next time.
