Rapper Kat Dahlia in Need of an Alcohol Education Program

by: Mike Miller

In a world filled with statistics one that begs to be asked is “how often are celebrities arrested for driving under the influence (DUI)?” This stat would not even take into account those who do not get caught.

In discussing this statistic we would have to define the term “celebrity.” I would take it to be any entertainer or politician whose arrest is covered by some entity. That would include a rapper like Kat Dahlia who was arrested recently in Florida. As reported in www.tmz.com.

The "Gangsta" singer was busted for DUI around 3 a.m. in Miami. She apparently had way too much to drink at her birthday party.

It comes as no surprise that the officer who pulled over her 2013 Nissan smelled a strong odor of alcohol emanated from the vehicle. The officer claims Dahlia's speech was heavily slurred as well, so the officer asked her to exit her vehicle -- at which point, Dahlia began to grow belligerent. Dahlia refused to complete a field sobriety test, and started cussing at the officer instead.

Dahlia was then placed under arrest, but allegedly resisted by refusing to put her hands behind her back. The officer had to force Dahlia's hands in order to cuff her.

Dahlia was subsequently transported to a nearby police station and booked for misdemeanor DUI and resisting arrest.

Nice way to start her 24th year, right? I hope she takes an alcohol and drug course and makes the smart choice not to consume alcoholic beverages in the future. I would hate to see become yet another statistic.
