Celebrity Drunk Driving Charges Filed: Jeffrey Wright and Kevin Hart

*It happened to funny man Kevin Hart a couple of weeks ago. It happened to actor Jeffrey Wright early Saturday morning (04-27-13).

Earlier this morning in NYC, Wright (pictured above) was stopped while driving a Toyota Tacoma at around 3:00 AM ET for an unknown traffic violation, according to TMZ.

Cops reportedly smelled alcohol emanating from the actor and did a field sobriety test. Yes, you guessed it, Wright didn’t do so well and was arrested for DWI (driving while intoxicated).

On the other side of the country in Los Angeles, nearly two weeks (04-14-13) after his arrest, on Friday, comedian/actor Kevin Hart was charged by the L.A. City Attorney with two misdemeanor counts of DUI (driving under the influence).

As we reported, Hart (pictured below) was arrested for DUI almost two weeks ago after CHP spotted him speeding and driving erratically on an L.A. freeway.  Cops say they clocked Kevin Hart at 90 MPH and watched as he almost collided with a gas tanker truck.

Reportedly Hart’s alcohol level was .15, almost double the legal limit!

If Hart is convicted, which is highly doubtful because he’s a first time offender, he could be sentenced to a year in jail.
