Kevin Hart Admits to Drinking When Arrested for DUI

Comedian was honest when asked about the incident.

Published April 15, 2013

Kevin Hart was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence on Sunday and now the A-list comedian is admitting to drinking before getting behind the wheel.

In an on-the-fly interview with TMZ, Hart was honest about his condition when he was arrested for a DUI on a Los Angeles freeway. Cops allege he was speeding and nearly hit a gas tanker on the freeway, which Hart denies. They also say the Real Husbands of Hollywood star resisted arrest, which Hart explains was also not true. He insists he simply asked officers to wait until he could remove his wristwatch before they handcuffed him.  Hart said via Twitter, "This is a wake up call for me, I have to be smarter & last night I wasn't....everything happens for a reason...."

No word on whether Hart plead guilty to the charges in court.
