Trick Daddy Arrested for DUI and Cocaine Possession
Trick Daddy was arrested in Miami for DUI and cocaine possession on Saturday morning.
According to the Miami Herald, a police officer responded to a report of a driver hitting signs and running red lights in a Range Rover. When the officer approached the vehicle, he noticed that the driver “appeared to be asleep behind the wheel.”
After being awakened by a knock on the window, the man told the officer he had about five drinks hours earlier at a club in Miami Gardens and was dropping someone off and heading home. He was identified by his driver’s license as Maurice Samuel Young aka Trick Daddy.
The report said Young had slurred speech, bloodshot, watery, glassy eyes, and the officer smelled alcohol on his breath. He agreed to a field sobriety test, but was unable to successfully complete it.
After being taken to the local station, police found cocaine inside a dollar bill while Trick Daddy was putting his possessions in a plastic bag.
He was booked into Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center and his bond was set at $5,000 on the cocaine possession charge and $1,000 on the driving under the influence charge.
This is not his first run-in with the law. In April 2014, the 45-year-old rapper was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm and ammunition by a convicted felon, possession of cocaine, and driving with a suspended license. In 1991, he served more than two years in prison for cocaine possession, carrying a concealed firearm, and violating probation.
