Lil’ Yachty celebrated his freedom today with stacks of cash as he boasted on instagram that he was not in jail.
That was not the case about a week ago when Yachty was caught allegedly driving more than 150 mph down an Atlanta interstate. He was pulled over on the Downtown Connector near University Avenue, according to WSBTV.
Apparently, Yachty was whippin’ a Ferrari when he got stopped by the police. The 23-year-old was taken to the Atlanta City Jail and his Ferrari was given to a friend at the scene.
Following his arrest, Yachty was charged with reckless driving and speeding in excess of maximum limits. His jail stay was relatively short as he reportedly posted bail shortly after.
This arrest comes just months after Lil’ Yachty crashed a red Ferrari on the same road. Back in June, witnesses reported that speed and wet roads were a factor in that crash.
Yacthy thankfully escaped that crash without any major injury but it sounds like it had no affect on his driving. He confirmed he was arrested but nonchalantly brushed it off in a TikTok video in which he joked about hoping his mugshot would not become public.
