Stand up comedian, Kevin Hart, made no jokes about his DUI and resisting arrest charges back in April, in fact he told the truth during the arrest, admitting he was drunk driving!
Allegedly, Kevin was pulled over by police for racing along LA highways at speeds of 90 mph and almost colliding into a gas tanker. He was pulled over and arrested for DUI after failing the DUI field sobriety tests, blowing a .15 breath test result (almost twice the legal DUI limit) and outright telling officers he was drunk!….Silly man, he shouldn’t have convicted himself like that, but I guess there is always something to be said about telling the truth.
In an interview, Kevin said he was charged with resisting arrest because he requested to remove his expensive gold watch from his wrist before officers handcuffed him. Officers felt Kevin wasn’t being compliant and charged him with resisting arrest…..no wonder cops are called bad names, if they were in the same situation I’m sure they wouldn’t want their $$ blingin watch scratched either.
Yesterday, funny man Kevin took responsibility for his first DUI charge and pled no contest. He was sentenced to 3 months of DUI alcohol education classes and 3 years of probation.

Female rapper Kat Dahlia is a perfect example of what “not to do” during a police DUI investigation and arrest. Do not let your emotions flare, do not curse at law enforcement, and do not resist arrest. All these actions will be noted in the arresting officers police report an will make the DUI charge much tougher for the criminal defense attorney to negotiate and/or defend.
Early Tuesday morning, Kat Dahlia was pulled over by Miami police for speeding. Allegedly officers could smell a strong odor of alcohol coming from her car and asked Kat to step outside her vehicle. According to police reports, Kat’s emotions got the best of her and she became belligerent. With heavily slurred speech, Kat began to swear at the officers and refused to take the DUI field sobriety tests (good girl for not taking the DUI field sobriety tests, remember the DUI field sobriety test are voluntary and should be refused).
Police began to arrest the singer for DUI, however, when police tried to cuff Dahlia, she refused to place her hands behind her back. Allegedly police had to force Kat’s hands together behind her back to properly cuffed her. Kat Dahlia was hauled into the local police office and charged with misdemeanor DUI and resisting arrest.
The DUI and criminal defense attorneys at David O Defense advise individuals to be respectful to law enforcement during a DUI investigation. When respectful to officers, individuals will be less likely to accrue additional legal charges such as resisting arrest. Additionally, when being questioned by police for a possible DUI, David O Defense lawyers recommend not talking to the officers, an individual should ask politely to speak to their criminal defense attorney. If an individual does not talk during a DUI investigation they will be less likely to say something that would incriminate themselves, such as; “I only had 2 beers.”
