This Is No Joke: Comedian Kevin Hart Arrested For DUI!

April 14, 2013  |  


I guess all the jokes in the world couldn’t stop this from happening.

TMZ is reporting that comedian Kevin Hart was arrested for DUI early this morning after almost having a huge accident.

Police say that around 4:30am/PT, Hart was driving on the 101 freeway in California at about 90 miles per hour. His erratic driving almost caused him to collide with a gas tanker but he was able to stop his Mercedes in time.

The California Highway Patrol pulled him over and while talking to him, he showed signs of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests.

Hart was arrested and booked in a local jail on a misdemeanor DUI charge.  According to TMZ, he’s been there since about 6am/PT and is being held on $5,000 bond.

Update: Kevin has been released and sent out the following tweets:


Well, this is unfortunate. I mean, we all have a choice to not drink and drive (we can call cabs if necessary) but a celebrity – especially one of Kevin Hart’s magnitude – can just have a driver take them everywhere.  There really are ways for them to avoid such silly arrests.

Hopefully, near or far from his home, Kevin won’t find himself in this situation again.

    Obviously he hasn’t been watching Rick Ross. Nothing funny about this, and for him to see this as such is unfortunate. MADD is going to be after his azz….

  • pooh

    not funny Kev, what if you had gotten hurt or died or killed someone??? smh

  • so… the cop is the one in the wrong when youre going 90 mph, admitting youre drunk, almost causing a horrific accident and killing another human or multiple humans (other drivers not expecting to stop suddenly for an accident) wow.

    • Gimmeabreak78

      Celebrity entitlement mentality at it’s worst. SMH.

  • honest

    i think the fact that he thinks this is funny is sad…what if he had hit a family and they got hurt instead of him?…most of the time that is what happens the other person gets hurt not the drunk driver….smh he knows better..


    Yay…he made it in Hollywood…he passed the test.
