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.”
During the short clip, a jail official can be heard in the background asking T.I. to get something quickly.
T.I. brushed off the officer and continued telling his story. He didn’t fully explain the situation but said it involved an accident where a police officer had rear-view mirror broken.
The rapper also mentioned not having his passport with him at the time. T.I. said the officer was “extremely upset. I was having a great time. I’m still not upset. I’m having a phenomenal time.”
He said the officers arrested him but didn’t place him in handcuffs. T.I. said they just opened the door of the police car and invited him into the back seat. T.I. said he “obliged” to the request and was taken down into the holding cell.
After explaining the story, He said, “Man, let me call, so I can make my bond, they don’t take cash here.”
He proceeded to take out wads of cash from his pockets and flashed it for the camera. A couple of hours later, T.I. posted a video of him being released from jail. He thanked his wife Tiny for helping get him out.
He wrote, “the love of my life made sure They stayed tha whole 25mins and demanded that I be released. Poor Caroline was shooketh!!! I told her "I've done real time before...Cmon baby let's gtfoh before they change they minds."
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.
