Plies Arrested for Driving Under the Influence

Plies just got bust-ed, baby.

The Florida rapper, famous for runnin’ off on the plug twice, was arrested on Tuesday (Jan. 17) for driving under the influence, according to TMZ.

He was pulled over on suspicion of the charge and then arrested. The 40-year-old rapper, born Algernod Lanier Washington, was then taken to Hillsborough County Jail and booked.

The arrest comes just days 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.”

Plies also sent a message to friends in that video. “To all my mother**ckin’ friends who just sit there and just let me get this mother**ckin’ drunk,” he said. “Y’all ain’t shit. Ain’t none of y’all shit.”

According to the Sheriff’s Office website, Plies is now out on $500 bond.
