Tracy Morgan Lives The Sober Life

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Like Paris Hilton, comedian Tracy Morgan was busted for a DUI last year, but the 30 Rock star is doing everything he can to stay sober and out of the slammer.

Morgan – who is hosting Spike TV’s First Annual Guys Choice Awards tonight (June 13) – isn’t planning to join the heiress in jail any time soon, since in his words, “I’ve done the rock n’ roll lifestyle thing and now I’m sober and moving on with my life.”

But just because he’s not locked up doesn’t mean Morgan isn’t following court orders.

In fact, in conjunction with his probation, Morgan must stay sober for 90 consecutive days, and is being tested by police through a court-issued Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring (SCRAM) device that Morgan must wear around his ankle to test for traces of alcohol in his skin every 30 minutes.

However, Morgan isn’t letting the anklet slow him down.

Says Morgan: “I’ve got this bracelet on me, so I gotta be cool now. But I’m still edgy and crazy. I’m off the streets, man!”

But while he’s enjoying his freedom, Morgan still wishes fellow DUI princess Paris well in the pen.

He adds, “I hope things get resolved with Paris and her family. She’s going to need a lot of treatment, and I hope she gets what she needs.”
