Mariah Carey’s “#Beautiful” duet partner Miguel was arrested for a DUI early on Thursday.
TMZ reports that the Los Angeles Police Department flagged the singer's car for both speeding and tinted windows. His arrest occurred shortly after 2 a.m. in Marina del Ray when police pulled him over and noticed the smell of alcohol on his breath. Miguel, whose real name is Miguel Jontel Pimentel, failed to pass any field sobriety tests and was taken into custody.
According to the report, Miguel blew a .10 and .11. Miguel was booked and released on $5,000 bail, USA Today reports. He is expected back in court on Sept. 9.
Miguel has found success last year with his single “Adorn,” which he won a Grammy for and his second album, Kaleidoscope Dream, had him nominated for rap song, song of the year, R&B performance and a nom for the album itself, the Times notes.
Miguel’s rep has not released a statement following his arrest.
