Tracy Morgan: Bring on the Judge!!

11/28/2006 6:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tracy MorganHours after Tracy Morgan was busted on suspicion of drunk driving in New York this morning, the actor shot down a deal that would have guaranteed he serve no time behind bars.

Reps from the Manhattan District Attorney's Office tell TMZ that Morgan decided not to accept a plea bargain that included a $1000 fine, five days of community service, a D.U.I. program and no jail time in exchange for a guilty plea.

Tracy Morgan court docsMorgan's criminal status probably played a role in his decision. By accepting the deal, Morgan essentially would be fessing up to violating probation in L.A. (on his prior DUI conviction), which would almost certainly land the actor behind bars.

According to the criminal complaint filed by the D.A., Morgan had "watery and bloodshot eyes" and had the "odor of an alcoholic beverage" on his breath when cops pulled over his Cadillac Escalade on the Henry Hudson Parkway . When asked if he had been drinking, Morgan responded, "Yes, I had some beer."

If convicted, Morgan faces a maximum one year in jail. He is due back in court January 4.

BAC of .08? That's the legal cut off, right? He probably only had 1 or 2 beers.

Dumb-ass. He's already on probation for another DWI, and he passes up no jail time??? Lock him up, if only for being stupid.

and supposing he "had only killed or maimed 1 or 2 people"? the supercilious jerk should go directly to jail. If one is already on probation for DUI you are instructed by the judge to NOT have even .01% BAC.

It looks like he might be his own worst enemy.

I don't understand the mentality of people who seem to have so much going for them but are hell bent on destroying it.

You don't get busted for suspicion of drunk driving. You are either arrested and charged with DWI or not charged at all. TMZ get your sh*t straight.

I feel really bad for him. ths is as mistake that millions of people make every year. he didn't hurt anyone. he's the father of like 5 kids or something. let the man have his drink. he should've just let someone else drive or cab it. but could someone tell playfulls.com that he's not on SNL anymore. they mentioned that he's still on the show like three times. oh and one more thing.
