Mac Miller: Arrested For DUI Hit and Run!

by at .

It's been a rough month for rapper Mac Miller.

Last week brought news that Miller and Ariana Grande had broken up after two years of dating.

Now, Mac finds himself in some serious trouble with the law.

According to TMZ, Miller was arrested in the San Fernando Valley last night after allegedly crashing his car while drunk.

Sources say he struck and knocked over a power pole with his 2016 G-Wagon.

That's pretty bad on its own, but here's where Mac really messed up.

According to a police report, an eyewitness saw Miller and his two passengers flee the scene on foot.

The onlooker called the police, who arrived at the scene shortly thereafter and ran Mac's plates.

When they arrived at his house, an intoxicated Miller confessed to his crime and was promptly cuffed, arrested, and taken into custody.

Mac's bail was set at $15,000, and insiders say he's currently still behind bars.

Needless to say, the 26-year-old has a whole lot of legal headaches in his immediate future.

Fortunately, it seems the situation didn't cause Mac to abandon his famously affable demeanor.

"He was the most polite and nice intoxicated person we've ever seen," one of the arresting officers tells TMZ.

We suppose that's a silver lining!

Despite recording four acclaimed hip-hop albums, Miller is best known in the mainstream for his relationship with Grande.

The Pittsburgh native and the pop princess were inseparable during their two years as a couple, and he famously supported Grande in the wake of the 2017 bombing at her concert in Manchester.

The couple has not given a reason for their split, but they reportedly parted ways on good terms.

By all accounts, Mac is a mensch, and his career and reputation will probably recover from today's scandal.

Of course, driving while intoxicated is not something to be taken lightly, and it'll probably be a while before Mac is able to come back from this.

Here's hoping he's able to find the help he needs and make better decisions going forward.
