Ariana Grande's ex-boyfriend Mac Miller is reportedly behind bars in a Los Angeles jail after confessing to a DUI and hit and run late Thursday night in the San Fernando Valley.

According to TMZ, the 26-year-old rapper (born Malcolm McCormick) was driving two passengers when his 2016 G-Wagon hit and knocked over a power pole, and they all fled the scene according to DailyMail.

When law enforcement officer tracked down the Pittsburgh-born producer at his home after running the plates, he surrendered and taken in with a bail set at $15K

'He was the most polite and nice intoxicated person we've ever seen,' a policeman told the site.

Mac's only prior brush with the law was spending a night in a New York jail with some friends back in 2011 for possession of marijuana, but the case was later settled.

Miller's arrest came a week after TMZ reported he and the four-time Grammy nominee - turning 25 next month - blamed 'busy schedules' for their break-up after a 20-month-long romance.
