Flo Rida - Flo Rida Avoids Jail Over Dui Case
Rapper Flo Rida has escaped jail following his arrest in June (11) on suspicion of driving under the influence.
The hip-hop star, real name Tramar Dillard, was pulled over by cops while driving his $1.7 million (£1.1 million) luxury Bugatti sports car after police saw the vehicle swerving between lanes in Miami Beach, Florida.
He was taken into custody after reportedly failing a roadside sobriety test and was booked for Dui and driving on a suspended licence, but was released after posting $2,000 (£1,250) bail.
On Monday (12Dec11) an attorney for the Low hitmaker convinced a judge to send the star to a first-time offenders' programme instead of handing him a stint behind bars.
Editors at Tmz.com report Dillard will now have to complete the Back on Track course, which will include substance abuse classes, community service, and drug tests.
If he successfully completes the programme, prosecutors will downgrade the charge to reckless driving.
