I received several phone calls and quite a few emails last night about Lackey’s ‘drunk & disorderly’ condition after he argued with bartenders downtown at the Twelve in Atlantic Station who didn’t want him driving in his condition.
Staff at the Twelve reportedly debated about calling the authorities but apparently James slipped out and into his truck before a decision could be made.
When he tried to drive off inebriated, he hit a few curbs and flattened both tires on the right side of his vehicle. Thankfully, no one was hurt!

I went to the 12 downtown to watch the grammys with my friend and James was there at the bar DRUNK AS A SKUNK!
He got his party started early with drinks and whatever else because the show was almost over when he got there and he was loud and obnoxious. The bartenders didn’t even want to serve him but I think he got someone to order drinks for him because his hand was never empty.
It was clear that JLac was f***ked up because he was slurring his words and stumbling around but I don’t think he was with anyone in particular.
Then he couldn’t get another drink so he got up to leave and almost bust his ass. It was a sad sight to see but we were just concerned about him driving in his condition.
We watched as he missed the driveway exit and hit the curb so hard that he bust out 2 of his tires. I thought he was going to keep going but he turned the truck around and went back into the turnaround at the Twelve where he sat for about an hour with his hazzard lights on.
I think somebody came and got him out of the car because the SUV sat empty on 2 flat tires for hours in front of the Twelve.
It was still there when I left and I took these pictures.
Just for the record… it’s not the first time James has been DUI.
There are no reports of an arrest last night, but Lackey was jailed on a DUI charge back in 2009 in Dekalb County where he posed for THIS MUGSHOT.
James has also been jailed before on domestic violence charges but clearly one thing has nothing to do with the other.
As far as Usher is concerend, Lackey is merely his “half” brother and it seems Ursh is letting him crash & burn on his own. Let’s just hope Usher’s lil bro gets it together soon.
