Rapper Andre 3000 was arrested outside of Atlanta on Saturday (March 28) for driving his 2007 Porsche Carrera at a speed of 109 MPH.
In what police called "an accident waiting to happen," the Grammy Award-winning artist was arrested by an officer from the Henry County Police Department's Highway Enforcement of Aggressive Traffic Team early in the morning, reported local station WSBTV.
If accurate, Andre's speed of 109 MPH was 44 MPH over the 65 MPH speed limit on I-75.
“Traveling that fast along 75, you’re passing people as if they’re standing still,” stated Henry County Police Captain Jason Bolton.
According to TMZ.com, the rapper was released after posting $1,200 bail. He is scheduled for a court appearance on April 29.
The arrest comes at a time when State Representative Jim Cole is lobbying for a "Super Speeder" bill to be passed in Georgia. The law will force violators driving more than 85 MPH on highways and four-lane roads to pay an additional $200 fine.
Cole hopes that Andre 3000 will help support the bill.
"He might be willing to help us market it," Cole added.
