Early Thursday morning (May 17), Mac Miller was arrested for DUI after a hit-and-run accident took place that involved drunkenly driving his 2016 Mercedes G-Wagon into a utility pole just a few hours prior. TMZ has now unearthed footage of the wreck thanks to a photographer on the scene around 1 a.m. West Coast time.
The video finds law enforcement on the San Fernanda Valey, Calif. scene trying to figure out the events that led to the luxury vehicle ending up going off the road. Mac was reportedly accompanied by two others in the car during the accident. One, who is shown smiling throughout the video, has been identified as Miller’s close friend Jimmy Murton.
Cops arrived at the 26-year-old’s nearby home in the morning, where he complied with police and admitted to have been drinking prior to hitting the pole and fleeing the scene. Following his arrest, the Pittsburgh native was booked and later posted $15,000 bail Thursday afternoon (May 17).
TMZ also filmed Miller as he was leaving jail early this morning, who was tightlipped and declined to comment regarding anything from his accident..
