Chappelle's Show Star Donnell Rawlings Arrested For DUI

There's nothing funny about drunk driving, Donnell Rawlings discovered that fact on Friday morning. The comedian, best-known for his character "Ashy Larry" on Chappelle's Show, is in police custody after he was caught driving under the influence in New York City, Page Six reports. 

Rawlings was arrested around 3:30am after police saw him allegedly driving drunk in the wrong direction down a one way street in Manhattan. Charges against the comedian are pending further investigation, cops say, though Rawlings's breathalyzer test was reportedly more than twice the legal limit.

Thankfully, no one was hurt as a result of Rawlings's road antics.
