It's not the club that couldn't handle rapper Flo Rida -- it's Flo Rida who couldn't handle the club. Flo, aka Tramar Dillard, hit a new "low" when he was busted for driving under the influence in South Beach Thursday morning. Adding insult to injury, the 31-year-old musician was driving irresponsibly in a car worth about $1.7 million. According to TMZ, the "Right Round" singer was cruising around in his 2008 Bugatti when police noticed him swerving at 3:30 a.m. Law enforcement officials noticed that Flo smelled like a brewery and asked him to perform a field sobriety test. TMZ is saying that a crowd quickly formed at the scene and eyewitnesses were encouraging police to let the rapper off, even offering to take him home. Too bad for Flo, it didn't work. When he was asked to walk the line, he refused, telling cops, "Officer, I can't do this. I don't feel I can't walk a straight line. I had a few drinks. Let's try another test." He then told officials that "I can make it home." Needless to say, the only place he made it was to the slammer. His blood alcohol level was a whopping .185, which is more than twice the legal limit. In addition, he was also popped for driving with a suspended license. Doubt he saw many apple bottom jeans and boots with the fur at the end of his wild night.
