Atlanta rapper Lil Yachty was arrested after authorities said he was clocked traveling more than 150 mph through downtown, the Georgia State Patrol reported.

Troopers pulled over 23-year-old Miles McCollum, as he’s officially known, on the Downtown Connector near University Avenue last week, authorities said.

McCollum, who was driving a white Ferrari, was charged with reckless driving and speeding, and was sent to Atlanta City Jail, according to the GSP.

Channel 2 Action News said the rapper crashed a red Ferrari near the same area back in June. At that time, witnesses said his speed and the wet roads caused the accident.
