Flo Rida’s Hotel Suite Raided, Weed Confiscated
Flo Rida has once again run afoul of the law.
The 'Low' rapper, who was arrested for a DUI back in June, was busted again, while on tour in Australia last night (Oct. 23), where his hotel suite was raided, after police received a tip about a "strong smell of burnt cannabis" coming from the rapper's suite.
Though Flo was not himself arrested, the police confiscated 16 grams of marijuana, a rolled joint, assorted drug paraphernalia including scales, Viagra, a bottle of liquid THC and an illegal high-powered taser. Flo's personal assistant, Dakari Dalawn Phillips was charged with possessing dangerous drugs, unlawful possession of restricted drugs and possession of a weapon.
Phillips was reportedly fined $1,800, and released shortly after, due to having no previous offenses.
The previous evening (Oct. 22), Flo Rida was scheduled to perform at Newcastle's Fat As Butter festival, but reportedly arrived three hours late, and was turned away by promoters for failing to appear "in a suitable condition to perform."
