Former Saturday Night Live Comedian Arrested for New York DWI

Tracy Morgan DWIFormer ‘Saturday Night Live’ regular Tracy Morgan was arrested early Tuesday morning and charged with New York DWI. The ‘30 Rock’ co-star was stopped around 4:30 in the morning while driving his Cadillac Escalade in Upper Manhattan.

Police stated that Morgan was driving erratically and was unable to “maintain a position in a lane of traffic.” It was reported that the 38-year old comedian smelled of alcohol and that he admitted to drinking beer at a club before being stopped. He was taken to a Precinct station house where he failed a breath test and was charged with Driving While Intoxicated and Operating a Motor Vehicle While Impaired.

Morgan is scheduled to appear in Manhattan State Supreme Court for arraignment.

The arrest jeopardizes Morgan’s probation for a previous California DUI conviction. He was arrested in Hollywood last December after registering a blood alcohol content of 0.13. The California legal limit is 0.08. He pleaded no contest to that incident and was fined, sentenced to three years of probation and ordered to attend an alcohol abuse program.

Morgan was a member of the ‘Saturday Night Live’ cast from 1996 to 2003.
