Lil Uzi Vert Receives Community Service as Punishment for Dirt Bike Charges
After being hit with a number of traffic violations last year, Lil Uzi Vert is only being punished with community service.
According to a report from TMZ, the "XO Tour Llif3" rapper didn't receive any punishment for 12 of his 13 charges but did plead guilty to failure to maintain his lane. The Philadelphia artist will now have to do 80 hours of community service, plus pay a $1,000 fine and court costs.
Uzi was originally arrested in Atlanta in December 2016. Police claim the rapper and a friend weren't wearing helmets when they were caught racing on dirt bikes the wrong way down a one-way street. The two then drove on the sidewalk and crossed five lanes of traffic without signaling. Lil Uzi then attempted to run away from police on foot when he lost balance and ditched his bike.
The rapper was charged with obstruction, reckless driving, not having a drivers license and plenty of other traffic violations and was released the following day after posting a $6,500 bail.
In related Lil Uzi Vert news, the rapper recently earned a nomination for the upcoming 2018 Grammy Awards. The artist will go up against Khalid, SZA and Julia Michaels for the Best New Artist award.
Uzi also recently dropped four new songs to go along with the deluxe version of Luv Is Rage 2. The new version of the project includes the songs "Skir Skir," "Loaded," "Diamonds All on My Wrist" and "20 Min."
