Flo Rida - Flo Rida's Assistant Arrested In Australia

Flo Rida's personal assistant was arrested in Australia on Sunday night (23Oct11) and fined for drug possession.
The rapper is currently touring Down Under, but the trip took a turn for the worse when cops raided the star's hotel suite in Queensland just hours before he was due on stage at a show in Townsville.
Dakari Dalawn Phillips, an employee of the star's Img Strongarm Management, was arrested and charged with possessing dangerous drugs, unlawful possession of restricted drugs and possession of a weapon after cops allegedly found marijuana, a rolled joint, Viagra, a bottle of liquid cannabis and a Taser.
The raid came after officers of the Northern Region Drug Squad received a tip-off which suggested the smell of marijuana was coming from the hotel room.
Phillips spent a night in jail and appeared at Townsville Magistrates Court on Monday (24Oct11), when he was handed a fine of $1,865 (£1,243) and released as he has no previous criminal record, according to Australia's Herald Sun.
The incident came just a day after Flo Rida cancelled an appearance at Australia's Fat As Butter music festival due to "unforeseen circumstances".
