Rapper gets pulled over, offers cops mixtape instead of ID



According to police, 18-year-old rapper Volvique Louis Jean Jr. offered his new mixtape as ID instead of his driver’s license when he was pulled over for reckless driving.

Jean was pulled over by police after his car and two others sped into the bus loop at the Atlantic Community High School in Delray Beach. The cars narrowly missed students who had just been dismissed from school.

Officers drove into the center of the road in a golf cart and forced the cars to pull over. When the officers asked Jean for ID, he pulled out instead his new mixtape.

One of the people in the other cars called out to officers that they were there to pick up a friend. The officers recognized several of the people in the cars as former students, including Jean.

The cars then pulled out into the road and sped off, nearly hitting more students on their way to flee the scene.

Jean has since been charged with eluding, reckless driving, driving with a suspended license and trespassing on school grounds.
