When police tried to conduct a field sobriety test, the "Low" rapper told them, "I can't do this. I don't think I can walk a straight line. I had a few drinks. Let's do another test. I live on the other side of the bridge. I can make it home."

Flo Rida was then arrested and taken to the Miami Beach Police Department for processing; he was later booked into the Miami Dade Correctional Department. Officers tell TMZ that the 31-year-old's blood alcohol level was a staggering .185, more than twice the legal limit.

Police also discovered that the rapper's license was suspended on May 3 for failing to pay a traffic fine after he was notified to do so by April 13.
