Kevin Hart was arrested for DUI over the weekend, something he is calling an awakening.
The comedian/actor confirmed the arrest on Twitter.
"When the cop asked me to take the sobriety test I said 'WHY WASTE OUR TIME...I'M DRUNK MAN,'" the 32 year old wrote.
"drinking & driving is not a game or a laughing matter. People have lost lives because of stupid s*** [like] this!" he continued. "This is a wake up call for me, I have to be smarter & last night I wasn't....everything happens for a reason."
The comedian also poked some fun at his arrest, writing , "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"
According to the Associated Press, Hart was pulled over early Sunday morning on the 101 freeway in Los Angeles.
He was reportedly driving erratically and almost hit a gas tanker while going over 90 MPH.
Hart failed a field sobriety test and was booked for misdemeanor DUI. He was released Sunday afternoon on a $5,000 bond.
