Webbie has a run-in with the law yet again. He was arrested in Mississippi on Sunday, September 14 after involving in a dangerous high-speed chase through Hattiesburg.
According to various reports, officers tried to stop the car he was driving, a 2009 Dodge Challenger, for a routine traffic stop on I-59 North at 3:30 P.M. Sunday, but he ignored the officers' flashing lights and continued driving erratically, forcing the authorities to chase him. The rapper kept moving on until exiting the interstate. It was during the chase that his vehicle crashed into a black 1999 Mercury Cougar.
Despite the collision, Webbie kept going on. Police, on the other hand, stopped to assist the injured passengers of the other vehicle and unfortunately lost sight of his car. Later that day, police found the Challenger abandoned in a Wal-Mart parking lot. Witnesses claimed to have seen Webbie exited from the car and got into another vehicle, a 1993 Ford Crown Victoria.
Quickly tracking down the car, police at last found it with Webbie and two other men inside. Webbie was thus arrested and charged with one count of felony eluding, one count of driving under the influence, one misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana, which was found in his Challenger, and one felony charge of aggravated assault with a motor vehicle. His two passengers were not charged.
The arrest was not Webbie's only legal issue. He, in the meantime, is also facing millions of dollars lawsuits, amidst claims that he took money from several promoters, but failed to show up to perform at concerts.
