Los Angeles – RnB singer Miguel has been arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of drunken driving.

A spokesperson for the California Highway Patrol says the 27-year-old Adorn crooner was pulled over in his BMW X6 just after 02:00 on Thursday for speeding and driving with tinted windows.

She says officers administered field sobriety tests, and a preliminary test measured his blood alcohol level at 0.10%. The state's legal limit is 0.08%.

Miguel won the Grammy for best R&B song earlier this year for Adorn. He also duets with Mariah Carey on her single #Beautiful.
