Lil Uzi Vert Arrested After Police Chase in Atlanta

While the wild-haired Lil Uzi Vert is out here making his money longer, let’s hope he’s not elongating a rap sheet in the process.

The Phily rapper was arrested on Thursday (Dec. 8) in Atlanta after he and a friend were racing their dirt bikes down a one-way street, TMZ reports. As found in the police report, Uzi was not only racing without his helmet, but the bike’s lights were off as well. He and the unidentified friend were gunning it down a sidewalk in the opposite direction of the one-way street, police said, and crossed five lanes of traffic with no signaling.

The report adds that once the “Money Longer” rapper caught wind of the Atlanta police after him, he hightailed it away from officers. Unfortunately, he lost his balance on the bike and continued his attempted escape from police on foot with his friend.

According to the site, Uzi racked up a few charges after the hasty chase. Among them are charges for reckless driving, driving without a driver’s license and multiple traffic violations.

Watch a snippet from what appears to be Uzi’s arrest below.
