Pitbull DUI Trial Starts In Miami; Rapper Faces Prison

AllHipHop Staff

The DUI trial of rapper Pitbull started today (July 8) in Miami, Florida.

Pitbull, born Armando Perez, landed his second DUI charge in December of 2007, after police stopped him driving 93 miles-per-hour on the Palmetto Expressway.

He was arrested and was eventually released on $1,000 bond. The rapper’s first DUI charge came in March of 2001.

In that case, he pleaded no contest and paid a fine.

Since this is his second DUI charge, Pitbull faces jail time if he is convicted of the 2007 charge.

Pitbull's latest single "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)" is currently #16 on Billboard's Hot 100 Single's chart.
