A South Carolina mayor quoted rapper Jay-Z on Twitter after he was found not guilty of driving under the influence.

“In the words of Jay Z, ‘not guilty, y’all got to feel me,’” Greenwood Mayor Wellborn Adams tweeted Thursday after the jury found him not guilty after deliberating for five minutes

Adams was arrested at a checkpoint just yards from his home in September 2015 after his wife’s 40th birthday.

State trooper Derek Johnson tried to present as evidence a breath test that showed Adams’ blood-alcohol level was 0.09 percent — over the legal limit of 0.08 percent where juries may presume a driver is legally drunk, The Index-Journal of Greenwood reported.
