Flo Rida Arrested For DUI on Miami Beach

The club might not be able to handle Flo Rida, but he can't handle the roads of South Beach. According to Riptide, the rapper is spending some time in Dade County jail today following an early morning DUI arrest on South Beach, police says.

Aside from what will probably be a massive hangover, the welcome concert for a celebrity golf tourney he's planning to host on Friday  is likely to earn him some scornful looks from Carlton Banks.

TMZ says that Flo was swerving a tad too much in his $1.7 million red and black Bugatti, and got pulled over at about 3:30 a.m. His blood alcohol level topped double the legal limit, according to sources.

Update: Mugshot added below.

Flo Rida, whose real name is Tramar Dillard, got busted at 3:45 a.m. at 5th

Street and Lennox Avenue, according to a Miami

Beach PD rep. He faces charges of DUI and driving with a suspended license.


The mugshots haven't been released just yet, but we'll pop 'em up here. As you can see below, Flo has a seriously gnarly earlobe but he is otherwise very put together given the circumstances.
