Lil Uzi Vert Arrested In Atlanta After Police Chase

(AllHipHop News) Lil Uzi Vert found himself in police custody last week.

TMZ reports the Philadelphia native was arrested in Atlanta on December 8.

According to authorities, Uzi and a friend were racing dirt bikes down a one-way street, drove on a sidewalk and crossed over fives  lanes of traffic without signaling.

Apparently, the two individuals were not wearing helmets or using lights.

Police say Uzi tried to escape officers before losing his balance and ditching the bike.

The “Too Much Sauce” performer and his friend allegedly attempted to flee on foot but were quickly captured.

Uzi (born Symere Woods) was hit with charges of obstruction, reckless driving, not having a driver’s license, and other traffic violations.

This was a breakout year for Lil Uzi Vert.

The 22-year-old rhymer was named a XXL Freshman class member, plus he released the Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World and The Perfect Luv Tape projects.
