TMZ was the first to report the arrest and alleges that Miller confessed to the hit and run after driving drunk. "He was the most polite and nice intoxicated person we’ve ever seen," a police source shared. The arrest comes a week after news broke that Miller and girlfriend Ariana Grande split. The 26-year-old rapper is known for his hits “Dang” and “Fight the Feeling".
PEOPLE confirmed that though the pair had broken up, they had chosen to remain friends. Ariana Grande took to Instagram to share her experience about her relationship with Miller. Ariana and Mac dated for almost two years before deciding to go their separate ways.

Mac Miller has been Ariana's pillar of support as she recovered emotionally after a suicide bombing that happened at her show last year in Manchester, England. The terrorist attack left 22 of her fans dead and injured around 119 others. Grande has now been working hard for her upcoming album, Sweetener, which is due to release on July 20.
The album will mark the first new music Grande has released since the Manchester bombing.
