Philadelphia rap newcomer Lil Uzi Vert reportedly found himself in handcuffs recently following a police chase with Atlanta police.

According to reports, cops chased and finally snagged Uzi Vert last Thursday (December 8) for riding a dirt bike without lights or a helmet on.

Cops say the duo raced the wrong way down a one-way, drove on a sidewalk and crossed 5 lanes of traffic without signaling. Cops say the rapper was trying to speed away from officers, but lost his balance and had to ditch the bike. He and his friend tried to flee on foot, but were quickly nabbed. Uzi was booked for obstruction, reckless driving, not having a driver’s license and a slew of other traffic violations. He got out Friday after posting $6,500 bond. (TMZ)

Recently, Uzi announced plans to put out a Luv Is Rage 2 project.

A few weeks ago, Uzi Vert dropped a new music project with rap veteran Gucci Mane.
