    André 3000 Busted for "Accident Waiting to Happen"

    The police don't particularly like the way André 3000's car moves.

    Georgia cops arrested the OutKast rapper for speeding early Saturday after clocking his 2007 Porsche Carrera going 109 miles per hour in a 65 mph zone, a spokesman for the Henry County Sheriff's Department confirms to E! News.

    "Traveling that fast along I-75, you're passing vehicles almost like they're standing still," Henry County Police Capt. Jason Bolton told Atlanta's WSB-TV. "And it's an accident waiting to happen."

    The six-time Grammy winner, whose real name is André Benjamin, apparently told police he was in such a hurry because he had missed his exit on the way to a birthday party and had hastily turned around. He was taken into custody and released a few hours later on $1,200 bail.

    A court date was set for April 29.
