Mac Miller has been released from jail. But, he's keeping his mouth shut about his arrest. See above. 

Mac Miller was arrested after allegedly crashing his vehicle while intoxicated and then running away from the scene. 

TMZ reports that the rapper was driving in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angles, California at around 1:00am on Thursday (May 17) morning when the accident took place. Miller was driving and his 2016 G-Wagon smashed into a power pole, which knocked it down to the ground. 

"Mac and his two passengers fled the scene on foot. An eyewitness called the cops and told them which direction Mac and his buddies had gone," the news outlet continues. "Cops arrived at the crash scene, ran the plates and got Mac's address. They went to his home and we're told he confessed to driving drunk and fleeing the scene."

One cop who arrived at the artist's home said that Miller "was the most polite and nice intoxicated person we've ever seen." The rapper was then arrested. As of the time of this writing, he's still behind bars with a $15k set bail. 

Just last week, Miller broke up with his ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande. "This is one of my best friends in the whole world and favorite people on the plant Malcolm McCormick," the singer said about her ex. “I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us!"
