'SNL' Star's DUI Bust

1/26/2006 1:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that comedian Tracy Morgan was arrested last month for drunk driving and today in court his lawyer made it clear -- her client is not going down without a fight.


The former 'Saturday Night Live' star was arrested on Dec. 2 in Hollywood. We're told cops claim he was speeding, but we've learned Blair Berk, Morgan's formidable defense lawyer, will argue that her client had broken no traffic laws and she can prove it.

TMZ asked Berk if she believes her client is the victim of racial profiling. Her response, "I don't discuss pending court cases."

Morgan, who created memorable characters on 'SNL' including Astronaut Jones and Brian Fellow, has an otherwise clean record. The case is back in court on Feb. 23, when Berk will ask the judge to suppress the evidence, including blood-alcohol test results.
