Mac Miller Arrested for DUI, Hit and Run — ‘He Was the Most Polite and Nice Intoxicated Person’: Report

Mac Miller has been arrested for drunk driving.

The 26-year-old rapper was arrested for DUI and hit and run early Thursday morning after he struck a power pole in the San Fernando Valley with his Mercedes Benz G-Wagon and fled the scene; after law enforcement officers matched the vehicle’s license plates to Miller’s address, they arrested him at his home, and his bail was set at $15,000, a Los Angeles Police Department public information officer tells PEOPLE.

A rep for Miller (real name: Malcolm McCormick) did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

TMZ — who was first to report the arrest — alleges that Miller confessed to the hit and run after driving drunk.

“He was the most polite and nice intoxicated person we’ve ever seen,” a police source told TMZ.

The arrest comes barely a week after news broke that Miller and girlfriend Ariana Grande split. On May 9, PEOPLE confirmed the pair had recently broken up but will remain friends.
