Revered Atlanta rapper Andre 3000 was arrested outside of Atlanta on
Saturday (March 28), for driving his 2007 Porsche Carrera at speeds so
excessive police called him “an accident waiting to happen.”
According to a report by local ABC-affiliate WSB-TV Monday afternoon (March 30), the Grammy Award winning rapper/actor was arrested by a member of the Henry County Police Department’s Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic Team early Saturday morning.
The officer stated that he clocked Andre 3000, born Andre Benjamin, at 109 mph, 44 mph over the 65 mph speed limit along that stretch of I-75.
Benjamin was arrested for the danger he posed to other drivers.
“Traveling that fast along 75, you’re passing people as if they’re standing still,” explained Henry County Police Captain Jason Bolton. “It’s an accident waiting to happen.”
The arrest comes as State Representative Jim Cole is lobbying for a new Super Speeder Bill to be passed in the state of Georgia. [ALL HIP HOP]
