Kevin Hart

Cuts Deal

In Drunken Joy Ride Case

8/5/2013 12:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kevin Hart
will NOT sport an orange jumpsuit anytime soon -- the comedian cut a deal following his high speed DUI arrest.

TMZ broke the story ... Kevin was charged with two counts of DUI stemming from his April bust, after cops say he flew down an L.A. highway at 90 MPH, almost crashed into a gas tanker and then bombed a field sobriety test. We're told his BAC was almost TWICE the legal limit -- .15.

Kevin just pled no contest to one count of DUI -- driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher -- in exchange the other count was dropped.

Kevin was sentenced to 3 years probation and 3 months of alcohol education classes.

Fact is ... almost no one gets jail time for a first DUI, but it's still a sweet deal because Kevin admitted he was waaaasted.

ZERO respect to idiots who can well afford a freaking drive drunk is like shooting a gun off in public.
And knowing his career will go in the toilet after this debacle of a movie will lead to more drinking.

C'mon TMZ, this is standard procedure for a first time offense with a DUI. You plead guilty to the DUI, which is dropped to a "wet and reckless", the other charge is dismissed, you get the $1800 fine, classes, and probation. Even Super Harvey should know this.

Quit acting like it's major news when they "get a deal".

FYI, my DUI was reduced to a "wet and reckless" with a 0.16 breathalyzer, and I'm not rich, nor a celebrity.
