Looks like a drunken-driving charge won’t keep rapper Flo Rida from hitting the road again.
Just hours after he was arrested for allegedly swerving his Bugatti Veyron on Miami Beach streets, Miami-Dade County Court Judge Luise Krieger-Martin signed an order today allowing him to travel to Thailand for a concert Saturday.
The 31-year-old rapper, whose real name is Tramar Dillard, posted $2,000 bond and was released from the Miami-Dade County Jail shortly after noon.
His lawyers quickly moved to get permission for him to make an evening flight. One of the rapper’s attorneys at Miami celebrity defense firm Lyons & Lurvey, Daniel Lurvey, met with the judge in her chambers and received an order allowing his client to legally leave the U.S.
Miami lawyers Christopher Lyons and Sandy Becher have joined forces for the case.
“Until we have an opportunity to meet with our client and conduct our own investigation into the facts, we are declining further comment on this matter,” they said in a statement.
While Flo Rida’s in Asia, his lawyers still have some work to do — get back his confiscated super-luxe wheels.
The hip-hop artist who grew up in Miami’s Carol City is best known for his 2008 hit “Low,” which featured T-Pain and stayed on top of the Billboard singles chart for 11 weeks.
