Comedian Kevin Hart pleaded no contest Monday to one count of driving with a blood alcohol concentration

of .08 or higher and was sentenced to three years probation. Hart -- whose movie ``Let Me Explain'' has grossed

$32 million since its July 3 release -- was also fined $390 and ordered to complete three months of alcohol

education courses, according to City Attorney's Office spokesman Frank Mateljan, who said it was a standard

sentence for a first-time DUI offender. A second identical count against Hart was dropped in exchange for his

plea.

The ``Laugh At My Pain'' funny man and ``Real Husbands of Hollywood'' actor was seen driving erratically at

speeds up to 90 mph on the Ventura (101) Freeway around 4:30 a.m. on April 14, according to reports by

TMZ.com. California Highway Patrol officials told TMZ.com that Hart nearly crashed into a gas tanker truck before

he was pulled over. Visibly intoxicated, Hart failed field sobriety tests and was jailed in Van Nuys for about seven

hours before being released, according to TMZ.com and Sheriff's Department records.
