Law enforcement sources say, 31-year-old Flo Rida was driving around in his red and black 2008 Bugatti, valued around $1.7 million, when cops observed the rapper swerving in his lane and pulled him over around 3:30 AM.
During the stop, cops detected the odor of alcohol, so Flo was given a field sobriety test … and didn’t perform very well. Flo Rida real name Tramar Dillard, was arrested on suspicion of DUI (Driving under the influence) and taken to a nearby station where he is currently being booked.
Cops say Flo’s blood alcohol level was .185 … more than twice the legal limit.
UPDATE: According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, cops say a large crowd gathered around Flo after cops had pulled him over.
Several bystanders were “trying to get officers to let Flo Rida go. Some individuals were offering to drive Flo home.” When the officer tried to conduct a “walk the line” test, Flo told the cop, “Officer I can’t do this. I don’t feel I can walk a straight line. I had a few drinks. Let’s try another test.”
Flo then tried to convince the officer, “I can make it home.” Cops didn’t let him try. Cops say they ran a computer check on Flo — and cited the rapper when they learned his driver’s license had been suspended last month for failing to pay a traffic fine. (TMZ)
