I’m officially a thug, I spent 6hrs in jail last night…I got pulled over 3blocks from my house by a dick head cop. This cop was the worst, he knew who I was & wanted to make a example out of me. I did 6,000 push ups & 13,000 sit ups while I was in the pin. Shout out to my celly “Mark” we exchanged war stories LMFAO When the cop asked me to take the sobriety test I said “WHY WASTE OUR TIME…I’M DRUNK MAN” ….. #TrueStory
He also tweeted:
On some real sh*t….drinking & driving is not a game or a laughing matter. People have lost lives because of stupid shit this! This is a wake up call for me, I have to be smarter & last night I wasn’t….everything happens for a reason….
I’m glad he realize drinking and driving is serious and hopefully this situation teaches him a lesson….
