Andre 3000 Charged With Driving 109 Mph In Ga.

Posted: Updated:
MCDONOUGH, Ga. (AP) - Andre 3000 of the hip hop duo Outkast is free on bond after police charged him with driving 109 mph on a highway in suburban Atlanta.

Authorities say the entertainer was clocked speeding in his Porsche in a 65 mph zone south of Atlanta early Saturday.

The 33-year-old's real name is Andre Benjamin. He is free on a $1,200 property bond pending a court date April 29.

Benjamin's publicist did not return a call seeking comment.

Police say Benjamin told them he was going so fast because he missed an exit and had to turn around.

As the Grammy-winning Outkast, Andre 3000 and Big Boi have churned out six platinum-plus albums, including their hit double-release "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below."
