Michael Ray Arrested In Hometown

Michael Ray got in a little trouble with the law. The singer was arrested in Florida earlier this week and charged with driving while intoxicated and possession of marijuana. 

The arrest occurred after Michael rear-ended a car at a McDonald’s drive-thru in his hometown of Eustis. He told cops his foot slipped off the pedal of his Jeep Wrangler, but officers noticed that his speech was slurred, his eyes were bloodshot, he had trouble walking and smelled of booze. He later failed a field sobriety test and while searching him officers found weed oil in his pocket.

He was charged under his given name, Michael Ray Roach and eventually released after posting $6,000 bond.  He later released a statement apologizing for his behavior.

“I want to apologize to my fans, family, and my hometown community for placing myself in this situation,” he shared. “I am so very sorry for the disappointment these events have caused everyone. I know it will take time; however, I will do everything I can to rebuild your trust.”
