Comic Kevin Hart has branded his DUI arrest on Sunday (14Apr13) a "wake up call" and vowed to change his ways in future.
The funnyman's car was pulled over by police in California in the early hours of Sunday after cops spotted him driving erratically. He was unable to complete a field sobriety test and was booked on a misdemeanour driving under the influence (DUI) charge.
After he was released on bail, Hart reached out to his fans on Twitter.com to express his regret over the arrest.
He writes, "When the cop asked me to take the sobriety test I said 'Why waste our time... I'm drunk, man'.
"On some real s**t... drinking & driving is not a game or a laughing matter. People have lost lives because of stupid s**t this (sic)!
"This is a wake up call for me, I have to be smarter & last night I wasn't... everything happens for a reason."
