The singer's trip to Florida has been marred by controversy. On Thursday, he was arrested and booked on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI), resisting arrest without violence and driving with an expired driver's license after cops in Miami Beach caught him drag racing with R&B singer Khalil Sharief, who was also arrested.
