Lil Uzi Vert Arrested in Atlanta for Traffic Violations After Dirt Bike Joy Ride
Lil Uzi Vert has had a crazy year as it is, but he's unexpectedly ending it with a huge bang.
The "Money Longer" rapper was recently taking out his dirt bike for a joy ride in Atlanta with a friend, but things took a turn for the worst during their fun. Uzi and his friend were riding through the ATL streets last Thursday, and reportedly were not using any protective gear, nor had on helmets.
According to authorities, the Philly native and his friend were driving pretty dangerously, as they raced the wrong way on a one-way road, rode on the sidewalk and even crossed five lanes of traffic without using a signal at one point. As the police attempted to pull them over, Uzi reportedly lost balance and ditched his bike, leaving them to try and escape on foot. Shortly later, they were both apprehended and arrested for obstruction, reckless driving, not having a driver's license and other traffic violations.
Fortunately, no one was injured during the incident, and Uzi was released on Friday after posting $6,500 bail. This isn't the first time that Uzi has made some noise with his bike riding, as the rapper was seen riding an ATV with Migos in their "Bad and Boujee" music video this year. It's hard to keep a Philly guy away from bike culture.
