Lil Uzi Vert is from Philadelphia, a city with a huge underground street riding scene. But Uzi’s love for bikes has apparently landed him in some hot water — TMZ reports that he was recently arrested after a dirt bike chase with Atlanta police.
According to the report, the 22-year-old and a friend were dirt biking last Thursday night (December 8) without lights or helmets, and they pretty much ignored all traffic laws. They allegedly rode on a sidewalk, ignored a one-way system, and veered across five lanes of traffic without signaling. Once officers started pursuing them, they allegedly tried to race away but ended up ditching their bikes and fleeing on foot. Cops eventually caught up to Uzi and booked him for obstruction, reckless driving, driving without a license, and various other traffic violations.
Uzi is now free after posting a $6,500 bond, and he apparently hasn't let the situation scare him too much — he’s already back on his bike. This afternoon, he posted a video on Instagram of him doing a wheelie, captioned, “RIGHT BACK Outchea.”
