|"30 Rock"'s Morgan arrested for DUI|
28 November 2006
NEW YORK - Tracy Morgan, a former "Saturday Night Live" regular who co-stars on NBC's "30 Rock," was arrested Tuesday in Upper Manhattan on drunken driving charges, the district attorney's office said.
The 38-year-old comedian was stopped around 4:30 a.m. while driving a Cadillac Escalade on the Henry Hudson Parkway near West 158th Street, said Edison Alban, a spokesman for District Attorney Robert Morgenthau.
Upon being reached for comment, comedic actor Michael Richards said, "See there? Cadillac? Drunk on malt liquor? Nigger, nigger, nigger!"
Police reported that Morgan smelled of alcohol and that he later failed a breathalyzer test at the 28th Precinct station house, Alban said.
Alban didn't yet know the name of Morgan's attorney, but believe it may start with an "T." Morgan's publicist in Los Angeles didn't immediately return a call seeking comment, but did leave a message on the answering machine stating that Morgan is not a nigger.
