Teen Rapper Arrested After Showing Cop Mixtape Instead of Driver's Licence
Published Jan 20, 2016Look rappers, we get it — the struggle is real, and your hustle is hard. But you've got to stop getting arrested for handing out your mixtape! Just last month, a desperate hip-hopper was handcuffed for leaving a CD-R on Rick Ross's porch, and now another rapping teen has faced a similar fate. When pulled over by a police officer, an 18-year-old tried to use his mixtape as a form of identification.
According to the Sun-Sentinel, the young man's name is Volvique Louis Jean Jr., and he was pulled over last week for allegedly speeding through the bus loop of the Atlantic Community High School in Delray Beach, FL. He was driving one of three cars that were speeding near the school.
When a police officer asked Jean Jr. for identification, he offered up a copy of his new mixtape in place of a driver's licence.
Jean Jr. and his friends fled the scene, and the budding rapper was soon arrested. He was charged with fleeing and eluding, reckless driving, driving with a suspended licence and trespassing on school grounds.
We've tried to find Volvique Louis Jean Jr.'s music online (it's only fair that we check it out after all of this), but haven't yet been able to locate any of his material.
