In addition, "there were two empty beers in the vehicle next to the driver."

When cops asked for his license, he instead handed over a credit card and passport, the documents claim.

Hunt admitted to consuming alcohol recently, and consented to a breath test.

He blew a .173, more than twice the legal limit.

The singer was taken to the Metro jail around 6:30 a.m. 

In his mugshot, Hunt’s eyes look bloodshot, and he gives a smirk to the camera.
