Flo Rida Arrested for DUI, Failed ‘Walk the Line’ Test
Flo Rida, known for his rap hit ‘Low,’ was arrested early Thursday (June 9) morning for drunk driving while in Miami Beach.
TMZ reports that the Florida native was cruising around Miami in a red and black 2008 Bugatti — valued around $1.7 million — when law enforcement witnessed him swerving in his lane. Police pulled the rapper over around 3:30AM and during the stop, detected a noticeable odor of alcohol.
The ‘Only One Flo’ creator was given a field sobriety test and admittedly told officers he could not perform to his best ability. “Officer I can’t do this,” Flo Rida reportedly told the officer. “I don’t feel I can’t walk a straight line. I had a few drinks. Let’s try another test.”
While police were conducting their investigation with Flo Rida, a large crowd began to form and several bystanders offered to drive the entertainer home. At one point, Flo reportedly tried to convince the officer he was in good condition to drive. “I can make it home,” he said. However, cops did not allow him to get behind the wheel.
Flo Rida, born Tramar Dillard, was arrested and booked on suspicion of DUI. According to reports, cops say the rhymer’s blood alcohol level was .185, which is more than twice the legal limit in Florida. He was also cited when law enforcement learned his driver’s license had been suspended in May for failing to pay a traffic fine.
