Celebrity rapper accused of drunk driving

People in Tennessee may worry about running into a drunk driver when they get behind the wheel and take to the roads. The face of drunk driving can be prominent and unexpected; for example, the 26-year-old celebrity rapper Mac Miller was arrested in May on drunk driving charges. The performer was arrested for driving under the influence and hit and run after he allegedly ran his Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon into a utility pole in California's San Fernando Valley.

The musician was arrested after police matched the license plates of the vehicle involved in the collision with Miller's name and address. He was arrested at his home by the Los Angeles Police Department and held on $15,000 bail on drunk driving charges. He was released after paying the bail, and a court date was scheduled for June 7. One source said that Miller told the police he had been driving drunk and hit the power pole. Reportedly, his blood-alcohol concentration was .15, nearly twice California's legal limit of .08.

The rapper said in the past that he has struggled with sobriety, speaking about his struggles to get clean in 2015 in a later interview. The accident came approximately a week after it was widely reported that Miller had broken up with his girlfriend.

Drunk driving charges can have severe repercussions. If convicted on DUI charges, individuals can face substantial fines, mandatory counseling for alcohol, loss of driving privileges and even jail time. This means that it may be particularly important to work with a criminal defense attorney in order to contest the allegations. A lawyer might challenge the evidence presented by police and work to bring a strong defense before trial and in the courtroom.
