Silento Arrested In Dekalb County For Driving 143 MPH
Silento, known for the “Watch me whip, watch me Nae Nae” song, was arrested in September and hit with a $105,000 warrant for court absence.
Now, he was detained again over the weekend for driving irresponsibly. A police report obtained by WSBTV says Silento was arrested for driving 143 mph on I-85 in DeKalb County.
On Friday, Silento was pulled over early at 3 am by police after the radar gun caught his extreme speed. The arresting officer saw him driving a white BMW SUV while he unsuccessfully to maintain the lane and swerved around slower vehicles.
Silento told the officer he was coming from Gwinnett and that people were following him from the club after promoting his new single. He claimed he gets followed wherever he goes. He continued saying, ‘If there are like ten cars following me, I can do 143 because I am not a regular person and you could go and look on your computer, and it would tell you that.”
He was arrested and charged with reckless driving, speeding, failure to maintain lane, and improper stopping. He bonded out of DeKalb County Jail on Friday around 12 p.m.
