Florida rapper Plies was arrested in the city of Wesley Chapel, located in the Tampa Bay, Fla. area, early Tuesday morning (Jan. 17) for driving under the influence, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

When he was pulled over by police, he refused a blood alcohol content test and was taken into custody for DUI. He was released later on the same morning on $500 bond.

Throughout Plies' career he's run into some trouble with the police, directly or otherwise. In 2006 he was booked for an alleged shooting at a nightclub in Gainesville, and the following year his manager was arrested with 80 pounds of cocaine on him.

Plies has been on his positive tip lately though, garnering attention with his recent #RacksUpToMyEarChallenge. See the best ones right here; Kodak Black even joined in on the fun.
