Plies was arrested on Tuesday (Jan. 17) for driving under the influence, according to TMZ. The Florida rapper was pulled over on suspicion of DUI and arrested shortly after. The 40-year-old rapper, (real name Algernod Lanier Washington), was then taken to Hillsborough County Jail.
The arrest comes shortly after Plies vowed to stop drinking. “I’m going to go and share something with y’all,” he explained in a video posted on social media. “I ain’t drinking no motherf**kin’ mo’. I ain’t. I ain’t drinking no mother**ckin’ mo’. I’m getting too mother**ckin’ young for this shit here, man. I can’t.”
He was released on $500 bond.
