Country singer Michael Ray was arrested on Wednesday morning for driving under the influence and drug possession.
The Daily News reported the 29-year-old was arrested at a McDonald’s drive-thru in Florida after he told police his foot slipped off the pedal of his Jeep Wrangler, prompting him to rear-end the car in front of him.
According to police, the “Kiss You in the Morning” artist was slurring his speech and had bloodshot eyes. Ray then admitted he had come from a bar and failed several sobriety tests.
The news publication added police found cannabis oil in Ray’s pocket during a search. Ray was then arrested for DUI and possession of marijuana at around 3 a.m.
Ray was held at the Lake County jail on a $6,000 bond.
The singer achieved success in 2015 when “Kiss You in the Morning” reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Country Airplay charts. His follow-up song, “Think a Little Less,” reached No. 2 soon after.
Reps for Ray did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
