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.

    Even though the authorities could probably smell liquor on his breath(unless Kevin kept some mints in the glove compartment) and he either couldn’t blow up the balloon or walk a straight line, it’s “suspicion of DUI”. He’ll probably make bond and somehow work this incident in the reality show.
