MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Rapper Flo Rida has entered into a deal for first time offenders on his DUI arrest on Miami Beach.

His attorney told the Miami Herald Wednesday (http://bit.ly/vEa4ip ) the singer will enroll in the "Back on Track" program which requires him to perform community service and take DUI classes.

If completed, Flo Rida will have his DUI charge amended to reckless driving with a withholding of adjudication.

His arrest report said officers spotted his car driving erratically about 3:45 a.m. on June 6. The report said the rapper, whose real name is Tramar Dillard, failed a field sobriety test, blew twice the legal limit on a device to measure his blood-alcohol level, had bloodshot, watery eyes, and slurred his speech.

Flo Rida's hits include the party jam "Low" and "Right Round."
