    Kevin Hart isn't laughing about this. 

    The California Highway Patrol confirms to E! News that the comedian was arrested under suspicion of DUI around 4:30 a.m. today after officers spotted Hart driving erratically at a high rate of speed and witnessed him almost colliding with a gas tanker truck. He was pulled over after failing a field sobriety test and was arrested.

    The actor was held at Van Nuys jail on $5,000 bond but was subsequently released and took to Twitter to discuss the incident.

    "I'm officially a thug, I spent 6hrs in jail last night...I got pulled over 3blocks from my house by a dick head cop," he tweeted. "This cop was the worst, he knew who I was & wanted to make a example out of me...."

    Hart continued, "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...When the cop asked me to take the sobriety test I said "WHY WASTE OUR TIME...I'M DRUNK MAN" ..... #TrueStory"

    Regardless of cracking jokes on the situation, the comedian said, "On some real shit....drinking & driving is not a game or a laughing matter. People have lost lives because of stupid s**t this! This is a wake up call for me, I have to be smarter & last night I wasn't....everything happens for a reason...."
