LOS ANGELES – Comedian Kevin Hart was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after his Mercedes nearly collided with a tanker trunk on a California freeway, authorities said.

California Highway Patrol Officer Ed Jacobs said Hart appeared intoxicated when he was pulled over before dawn Sunday in Los Angeles.

Hart failed a field sobriety test and was booked for misdemeanor DUI. He was released later Sunday after payment of a $5,000 bond.

Jacobs said the Mercedes was being driven erratically at over 90 mph (145 kph) and nearly slammed into a gas tanker.

Hart starred in the 2011 stand-up special “Laugh At My Pain” and has appeared in TV’s “Undeclared” and in several movies.

A call to a spokesperson for Hart was not immediately returned.
