Earlier this week, Krayzie Bone pleaded “no contest” to driving under the influence as part of a plea deal with prosecutors, keeping the rapper out of jail.

The Cleveland rapper has been required to take an alcohol education course. In an interview with TMZ, he commented on the matter.

“This was the first time I was ever in a situation like this and I guarantee it will be the last.”

The experience appears to have left a positive impact on Krayzie, who will take precautions to avoid any such situation again. “From this point forward I will always have a designated driver or car service. If I can’t get those … I will not be drinking at any party I attend, unless I have a responsible way to get home.”
