Rapper Lil Yachty Arrested, Charged with Driving More Than 150 MPH

Lil Yachty was arrested last week after being pulled over for driving more than 150 mph down an interstate highway in Atlanta.

The 23-year-ol rapper was taken to the Atlanta City Jail and charged with “reckless driving and speeding in excess of maximum limits,” according to local outlet WSB-TV.

Yachty was driving a Ferrari and his friend took to car home after the arrest.

Back in June, Yachty crashed a different Ferrari on the some highway. At the time, high speeds and wet roads were cited as factors for the crash.

Yachty took to Instagram on Monday (September 28) after the news went public to show that he is not in jail. He posted a video of himself with wads of cash in a car and said, “I’m not in jail.”

Usher & Forest Whitaker Share a Laugh at 'Burden' Atlanta Screening

Usher and Forest Whitaker have a moment at a screening of their film Burden!

The co-stars, ages 41 and 58, respectively, hit the red carpet at the event held at The Plaza Theatre on Monday (March 2) in Atlanta.

They were joined by their castmates including Crystal Fox, writer/director Andrew Heckler, and more.

Also in attendance were rappers T.I., Lil Yachty, and Jermaine Dupri, as well as Usher‘s mom Jonetta Patton.

Here’s the synopsis for Burden, currently in select theaters: “When a museum celebrating the Ku Klux Klan opens in a small South Carolina town, the idealistic Reverend Kennedy (Whitaker) resolves to do everything in his power to prevent long-simmering racial tensions from boiling over. But the members of Kennedy’s congregation are shocked to discover that his plan includes sheltering Mike Burden (Garrett Hedlund), a Klansman whose relationships with both a single-mother (Andrea Riseborough) and a high-school friend (Usher) force him to re-examine his long-held beliefs.”

It continues, “After Kennedy helps Mike leave behind his violent past, the Baptist preacher finds himself on a collision course with manipulative KKK leader Tom Griffin (Tom Wilkinson). In the face of grave threats to himself and his family, the resolute Kennedy bravely pursues a path toward peace, setting aside his own misgivings in the hopes of healing his wounded community.” Watch the trailer.
