IN AMSTERDAM, T.I. WAS ARRESTED: ‘IT SAID POLICE IN A DIFFERENT LANGUAGE’

On Tuesday (August 3), T.I. was reportedly detained in Amsterdam after an unpleasant bike mishap. The Hustle Gang boss says in a video posted to Instagram that he was arrested for using his phone while driving through town. He claims he didn’t come to a halt when crossing the roadway, and his handlebar shattered a cop’s side mirror.

“So I’m locked up now,” he said in an Instagram Live video uploaded by TMZ. “I’m obviously not supposed to have my phone as I’m biking and because the policeman ran into me and broke his side mirror…and I didn’t have my passport on me. I don’t know. It’ll be fine. He was extremely upset. I, myself, was out having a great time. I’m still not upset. They arrested me and didn’t even put me in handcuffs. They just opened the door and invited me to the backseat. I obliged.

“Let me see how I can make my bond real quick ’cause they don’t take cash. I got cash in my pocket, but they don’t seem to take this [laughs]. I ain’t no handcuffs put on me yet. They ain’t search me yet. We working on the buddy system out here and I like it.”

T.I. gets out of jail in another video and claims he had no idea the man shouting at him to halt was a cop.

“He was in a white van,” he says. “I didn’t know he was police. He looked like a furniture delivery …. I didn’t know he was. So then he pulled and I kept going, kept pushing like he wasn’t talking to me because I didn’t know what he was saying.

“Then he on the side and he said, ‘Stop!’ I understood that. Then I could see it said police in a different language, so I was like, “OK, this must be they police.’ I pulled over. I stopped, I slowed down at least and I guess I didn’t stop fast enough for him, so he pulled up and tried to cut me off.”

The officer then allegedly pressed up on his handlebar with his rearview mirror, knocking it off the police car, according to Tip. He was apprehended at that point.

Tiny, T.I.’s wife, was obviously on the trip, as her voice could be heard in the second video as they joked with the locals about how cops in the Netherlands don’t shoot Black people.
