Flo Rida arrested on suspicion of DUI
Flo Rida was arrested in Florida this morning on suspicion of driving under the influence, it has been reported.
The 'Low' rapper - real name Tramar Dillard - was stopped by police early Tuesday morning after swerving in and out of his lane in his $1.7m Bugati.
Flo Rida is believed to have admitted to having a few drinks and requested that he be allowed to drive straight home even after failing to walk a straight line as part of a field sobriety test.
At this point, Flo Rida was apparently placed under arrest and transported to a local police station in order to be booked on DUI suspicion. The officers also ticketed him after discovering that his driving license was suspended as a result of failing to pay a traffic fine in May, according to a police report obtained by TMZ.
The hip-hop star's blood alcohol level was more than double the legal limit at the time of his detention, an insider told the website.
Flo Rida has notched up five US platinum-selling singles, including 'In the Ayer' and 'Right Round', as well as two Top 10 albums.
He announced in May that his fourth studio album Only One Rida (Part 2) will be released later this year.
