Back in January, Plies made a very dumb move. He decided to drink and drive and, as a result, was arrested. Now it seems the footage of his arrest has been released to the public. TMZ first broke the story, and they were the ones who obtained and released this footage. The whole thing is a bit disconcerting to watch.
In the footage, you can see the rapper wearing a Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone T Shirt. Despite the precedent of the relationship between rappers and police, Plies does cooperate with the authorities as he tells them about a registered firearm located inside his vehicle. He seemed pretty lucid, asking the officers about the one way street on which they pulled him over.
However, he did refuse a blood alcohol test and was taken into custody for driving while under the influence of alcohol. He was released that same morning on a $500 bond. Of course, it’s certainly not the first time 40-year-old has had a run-in with the law. Back in 2006, he was arrested for an alleged shooting at a nightclub in Gainseville.
Just a year later, his manager was arrested for being in possession of 80 pounds of cocaine. He also had a kid, so you’d think he’d know by now that he should be setting a good example for him. Of course, he hasn’t let this incident ruin his spirits as all, reminding all of his Instagram followers that they should be mindful of Valentine’s Day despite it being a pathetic excuse for a holiday.
It’s not clear when exactly his trial will be as there has been no word on it as of yet, but I think it’s safe to say he’ll be showing up in court sometime within the next few weeks. So then he’ll have to deal with the ramifications of his actions.
