Flo Rida was arrested in Miami Beach last week for Driving under the Influence, after police received reports that he was driving erratically. Flo Rida pulled over while driving his $1.7 Million Bugatti and, according to reports, appeared to have bloodshot, watery eyes and slurred speech. He failed several field sobriety tests and blew twice the legal limit on a preliminary breath test (referred to as a "PBT.") After he was unable to walk a straight line twice, Flo Rida told police that he couldn't perform the test and asked to try another test. He also tried to assure officers that he could make it home, without success.
Driving under the Influence (DUI/DWI) is an offense that could happen to anyone. But, it is also an offense that can have very serious consequences if you are convicted. A person convicted of a first-offense DUI in Nevada can face up to six (6) months in jail, a $1,000.00 fine plus administrative assessments, be required to attend DUI School and/or complete ninety-six (96) hours of community service to be performed in distinctive clothes identifying him or her as a DUI offender. If the person has a Blood Alcohol Level in excess of 0.18 at the time of arrest can face additional penalties, including an alcohol assessment and extensive counseling requirements. A person convicted of a second DUI offense within seven (7) years can face even harsher punishments, and a third offense within seven (7) years or a DUI Causing Substantial Bodily Harm or Death can bring substantial MANDATORY PRISON sentences.
