A rapper in Florida who once boasted that he “didn’t care what anybody thought” about him as a gangster, has been charged with “failing to maintain control of a motor vehicle” after allegedly hitting and injuring a pedestrian while driving drunk.
The Gainesville Sun reports that rapper and actor Michael “Mikey” Tullis, who’s currently in a custody battle with the Florida Department of Children and Families, was charged with one count of DUI, three counts of DUI with a blood alcohol content of .08 or more and two counts of failure to maintain a valid driver’s license, a misdemeanor.
He is currently in custody at the Miami-Dade County Jail, where he is due back in court on October 26.
The incident happened last month.
Tullish was caught on video hitting the pedestrian and then fleeing the scene, but the victim was not injured.
According to his Instagram account, Tulls life has been turned upside down since he was released from jail in March.
According the Miami Herald, Tully is currently a regular at a Miami nightclub and has been a frequent fixture in the city’s music scene.
He reportedly went on a five-month tour with rapper Big Boi, but they left after a disagreement over a promotional contract.
Tully’s Instagram page also includes the tagline, “Just want to give a shout out to all my fans.”
“I feel like I’ve always been a good person, but when I’m in my life, I think I’m just a gang member, a thug, a b***h,” he reportedly said.
“I don’t feel like my character changed.
I think that’s what it’s all about.”
