Flo Rida has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving, according to reports.

The rapper, real name Tramar Dillard, was booked by police in Miami Beach earlier today (June 9) after they observed him swerving his 2008 Bugatti in his lane and pulled him over around 3.30am.

When police detected the smell of alcohol, he was given a field sobriety test, which he failed. He was found to have a blood alcohol level of .185, more than twice the legal limit, according to TMZ.com. He was taken to a nearby station where he was subsequently booked.



According to a police report, a large crowd gathered as the incident progressed, with onlookers asking police to let him go, and some offering to drive him home. When he was made to conduct a 'walk the line' test, the rapper apparently said: "Officer I can't do this. I don't feel like I can walk a straight line. I had a few drinks. Let's try another test."
