Lil Baby was taken into custody in Paris after cops reportedly found weed on him.
According to reports, the rapper was hanging out with NBA star James Harden in the famed Avenue Montaigne earlier today. The two are in town for Paris Fashion Week.
The Bigger Picture rapper and the Brooklyn Nets star were seen walking around with a group of friends.
The police approached the men for an unknown reason and started searching them. In videos posted to social media, Lil Baby is seen handcuffed in the back of a police van.
The officers are surrounding him while he seems visibly upset. Lil Baby can be seen screaming at the officers in one video while Harden is seen standing outside the car.
Harden is heard telling other people he was unsure what was going on as cops searched the group. At one point, eyewitnesses claim Harden tried to intervene when police were arresting the rapper.
His attempt to step in led to the officers deciding to search the NBA star on the street. Harden was not arrested or placed in the cop car. Locals say Lil Baby was arrested along with 2 other men for “marijuana-related charges.”
The report says cops pulled over a car after smelling marijuana coming out the window. Police claim to have found 20 grams of weed.
Paparazzi photos show the police holding up a vaping device but it’s unclear who they found it on.
Earlier in the day, Harden and Lil Baby stepped outside their hotel to talk to fans. The crowds screamed out with excitement to be close to the celebrities. The Paris Police Department says the matter is currently under investigation and would not provide further details.
Lil Baby is reportedly still behind bars as the police process him.
Hours before the arrest, Harden and Lil Baby were seen front row during a fashion show. The Nets star has been enjoying his trip and posting snaps of the designer duds he's been rocking throughout the week.
