Lil Uzi Vert gets out of a sticky legal situation.
After being charged for a slew of traffic violations last year, all Lil Uzi Vert will have to do now is get on that XO Community Service Life.
According to TMZ, the Philly rapper scored a big legal win earlier today, after nearly all of the dirt bike-related charges that he fell victim to last year have faded away with no consequences to him. Instead, he'll have to answer to just one of the 13 violations that he pinned against him, and it's the one he plead guilty to.
The one charge that he couldn't escape, failure to remain in his lane, will cost him 80 hours of community service, a $1,000 fine and picking up the tab for the court costs. For Uzi, it's a drop in the pot, considering he could've been facing jail time for the incident, which took place in 2016. If you remember, Uzi was arrested last December for allegedly riding down a street in Atlanta, in the opposite direction of traffic, with a buddy of his. The also drove on a sidewalk and crossed 5 lanes of traffic in a reckless manner.
After his joyriding escapades, he also allegedly tried to ditch the bike and attempted to get away from the scene of the incident on foot. He was eventually picked up by cops, who slapped a slew of charges on his record. Thankfully, he'll be mostly free of that indiscretion, it's just the volunteer work that needs completing.
Things haven't been uniformly rosy for Lil Uzi Vert as of late, however. The young rapper took the death of contemporary and personal friend Lil Peep hard, reportedly trying sobriety following the man's death. "I have been cursing my love ones out and fighting," he said, detailing the physical symptoms of trying to exercise his own demons. "In the studio with no thoughts in my head. Teeth biting down because I just wanna be angry at something ... Maybe I will just smoke weed tonight."
Uzi also scored a Grammy nod this year for Best New Artist. Check out the full list of nominees and vote on who you think should win here.
