Flo Rida Busted For DUI on South Beach UPDATED

Flo Rida, the Sunshine State's favorite boots-wit-da-fur spokesman, is headed to Dade County lockup after an early morning DUI bust on South Beach a few hours ago, Miami Beach police officials tell Riptide.

We're guessing this might put a crimp in Flo's plans to host a celebrity golf tournament with DJ Irie tomorrow.

Flo Rida, real name Tramar Dillard, was arrested at 3:45 a.m. at 5th Street and Lennox Avenue, says Deborah Doty, a spokeswoman for the Miami Beach PD.

He's been charged with DUI and driving with a suspended license, Doty says.

Doty says a full police report and mug shots should be forthcoming in the next hour -- until then, the TMZ masses will just have to hope for a Busey-worthy appearance.

Update: The mug shots are in, and are sadly un-Busey-esque.

Meanwhile, TMZ reports that Flo Rida was arrested for swerving in a $1.7 million Bugatti.
