LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say comedian Kevin Hart has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after his black Mercedes nearly collided with a tanker trunk on a Southern California freeway.
California Highway Patrol Officer Ed Jacobs says Hart appeared intoxicated when he was pulled over before dawn Sunday on Highway 101 in Los Angeles.
Hart failed a field sobriety test and was booked for misdemeanor DUI. He was held on a $5,000 bond.
Jacobs says the Mercedes was being driven erratically at over 90 mph and nearly slammed into a gas tanker.
A female passenger in Hart’s car was sent home in a taxi.
Hart starred in the 2011 stand-up special “Laugh At My Pain” and has appeared in TV’s “Undeclared” and in several movies.
A call to a spokesperson for Hart was not immediately returned.
