A highway patrol officer said Hart appeared drunk when he was pulled over on Highway 101 just before 4:30 a.m.

At the time of the incident a woman was in the passenger seat of the car, she was sent home in a taxi.

Hart failed a sobriety test and was booked for misdemeanor DUI.

Today Hart took to twitter to say the incident was “a wake up call.”
