*Rapper Flo Rida, arrested in Miami Beach this morning after cops caught him swerving his car, was charged with driving under the influence as well as driving with a suspended license after failing to pay a traffic ticket.
He was later released on $2,000 bail and a judge signed an order allowing him to fly Thursday night to Bangkok, Thailand, to perform several concerts, said his lawyer Christopher Lyons. The order requires Flo Rida to return June 16.
As reported earlier, an arrest report stated officers spotted his 2008 Bugatti driving erratically about 3:45 a.m. The report said the rapper, whose real name is Tramar Dillard, failed a field sobriety test, blew twice the legal limit on a device to measure his blood-alcohol level, had bloodshot, watery eyes, and slurred his speech.
After his second attempt at trying to walk a straight line the rapper said, “Officers, 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. I live on the other side of the bridge. I can make it home,” according to the Miami Beach Police.
