Kevin Hart -- Cuts Deal In Drunken Joy Ride Case


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.
