Mac Miller Arrested for DUI in Hit-and-Run Accident


As if he did not already have quite a bit on his mind bringing him down recently, "Hi" rapper Mac Miller has managed to get himself into some seriously hot water with the law.

Law enforcement sources TMZ that Miller was driving in California's San Fernando Valley at 1 a.m. PDT Thursday when his vehicle hit a power pole, knocking it down. The rapper was with two passengers at the time and, according to an eyewitness, all fled on foot. When cops arrived at the crash site, they were able to run Miller's plates and find out the address listed on his registration. But if there's any silver lining in the whole ordeal, police did state that Miller was one of the most "nice" and "polite" intoxicated people that they have ever dealt with.

Miller, real name Malcolm McCormick and who had a hit with 'Dang!' two years ago, was then arrested and taken to the local jail, where he reportedly remains now.

Earlier this morning, TMZ reports that Miller was photographed leaving a prison in Van Nuys. However, the two recently split due to their busy schedules and have unfollowed each other on Instagram.

A short time later, Miller was arrested without incident at 1:50 a.m. for a misdemeanor DUI, the official continues.
