Sean Kingston

Saves Himself from Driving Drunk

Blames TMZ

6/14/2013 11:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

061413_sean_kingston_launch_v2Sean Kingston was thiiiiis close to making a TERRIBLE decision last night -- getting behind the wheel of his car after a night of boozing -- but at the last second, he GOT OUT OF THE DRIVER'S SEAT ... thanks to our camera guy.

The 23-year-old rapper was leaving Playhouse nightclub in Hollywood around 2am after a night of partying ... and beelined straight for the driver's seat of his Bentley.

But right before he hit the road, an intoxicated Sean had a moment of clarity ... and JUMPED out of the driver's seat so a sober person could take the wheel. The funny part ... he actually tried to blame TMZ for shaming him into making the right move.

"This is what TMZ wants to catch -- they want to catch a DUI!" Kingston says. "NOT ME!!!"

We're glad he made the right decision ... but there's one thing that's still bothering us about the situation -- would he have driven the car if our camera WASN'T there?

TMZ should not guilt you into DOING THE RIGHT THING. IT'S BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY; which they all seem to be AFTER the fact.

Obviously he got out because he knew he was intoxicated and couldn't drive. I am happy someone got him off the rode, and he didn't kill someone in the process.

He would have drove. Jet ski accident was enough for him I guess.

It's a good thing someone from TMZ was there. Who knows how this would have turned out.

OBVIOUSLY, he would've driven that car had there been no video evidence. Shame! Shame! Shame!

yeah that's a real mystery because we all know black people don't make decisions without thinking of the consequences. Just look at your local prison.

Journalist are supposed to cover the news not make it. You should have let him drive, followed him, than filmed the bloody victims if there was a crash.

You ungrateful twit Kingston. If it wasn't for the fact that he could have killed someone else I would have let him drive and either get busted or in a bad A$$ accident. Almost killing yourself on the jet ski obviously didn't do anything for your common sense.
