In an Instagram post on Monday, Alabama rapper Yung Bleu accused Gainesville, Georgia police officers of racial profiling (August 23). When the owner of the firm phoned authorities, the “You’re Mines Still” musician said he was trying to acquire a trailer for his forthcoming tour.
“THESE GAINESVILLE, Ga POLICE OFFICERS are racially profiling us !” he wrote alongside videos of the incident. “They approached me and my team for absolutely nothing trying to buy a trailer for my tour at (Absolute Trailers) the owner was a old white guy who called the police talking about they suspect fraud ! I was just trying to buy a trailer !
“The first officers walk up with hands on guns . damn near drawn on us saying ‘What y’all doing here’ …We have a brief back n forth and then As I leave the cop is sitting in the middle of the highway waiting on us . They trap and get get behind me ! say my tag is obstructed but she clearly had her lights on way before she saw the back of my car ! 5 cars have pulled up on us since then ! Saying we do fraud and all type of lies !”
He added, “I HAVE MORE VIDEO BUT I will use only as evidence . We did nothing wrong !”
According to The Shade Room, Yung Bleu was arrested for a suspended license and cited for an April party. He admitted after posting bond that he never made it inside the trailer business and that he remained outside for 10 minutes before police arrived.
Following an apparent run-in last week, cops were summoned to investigate a possible fraud case, but Yung Bleu was originally permitted to leave the scene because investigators lacked sufficient cause. He was hauled over by another cop not long after that.
Bleu wrote in the comments, “They made that tag shit up to stop me u pulled me over before u even got behind me dumb and u smiling cuz u no u racist.”
