Juelz Santana Jailed After Caught Driving While on Cell
Juelz Santana may want to think twice about talking on his cell phone while driving because he was arrested while committing that very act, Wednesday (August 11). The rapper was initially pulled over for driving and talking on his cell phone, but was taken into custody after it was revealed that he was driving without a license.
"Juelz Santana was arrested this AM after being pulled over in his Bentley for talking on a cell phone while driving," Santana's spokesperson, Lynn K. Hobson told XXL. "He was then taken into custody for driving without his license. Old warrants that had not completely cleared the system were also cleared. Juelz paid a few fines and was released immediately."
Once free, Santana tweeted the news to his almost 200,000 followers (hopefully not from behind the wheel). "A! SMFH Jus got locked up!" Unfortunately, the 28-year-old is no stranger to arrests. Last year he was taken into custody for allegedly threatening to kill his girlfriend, and in 2008 he was arrested for marijuana possession.
This latest driving infraction isn't the first time that a celeb has made headlines for using their phone while behind the wheel. Last month, Beyonce was allegedly pulled over in New York City for texting while driving.
