Tony Barson/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Comedian Kevin Hart probably wishes he was this eloquent early Sunday morning.

After the actor was arrested on suspicion for DUI in Los Angeles, he took to Twitter to speak out about the incident.

“Drinking & driving is not a game or a laughing matter,” he wrote. “People have lost lives because of stupid s— like this!”

A California Highway Patrol officer pulled over Hart, 32, after his black Mercedes nearly hit a tanker truck on Highway 101 in Los Angeles. The “Laugh at My Pain” star failed a field sobriety test and was booked for misdemeanor DUI. He was released later that day after posting $5,000 bond.

“This is a wake up call for me,” Hart continued on Twitter. “I have to be smarter & last night I wasn’t. Everything happens for a reason.”
