Rapper T.I. claims he was arrested after an incident where a police officer’s car was damaged. The 40-year-old posted a 2-minute video taken inside an Amsterdam jail cell.

He spoke to the camera telling his followers, “So, I’m locked up now, I’m obviously not supposed to have my phone.” The rapper added, “And because I didn’t have my passport on me. I don’t know. It will be fine.”

The Amsterdam police have yet to release additional details on the situation. As Radar previously reported, T.I. is having a rough couple of weeks. He recently tried to defend DaBaby after he made homophobic remarks and was quickly scolded by the internet for his apparent ignorance.
