Newly surfaced video shows the rapper being handcuffed and detained by Georgia law enforcement. The footage, shared by the Shade Room, was taken Thursday evening in Atlanta. A man who is identified as Lil Baby in the video is seen on the ground next to an orange Corvette as a uniform officer stands above him. Shortly before his apparent run-in with cops, Lil Baby posted an Instagram story in which he was seen riding in his Rolls Royce bumping tunes. Lil Baby's outfit in the IG broadcast looks similar to the one worn by the detained man.
Sources told TMZ the artist was arrested for "failure to signal, eluding police, and reckless driving." He remains in custody as of press time, but is expected to be released on bond later tonight.
Check out the video below.
Complex has reached out to Lil Baby's camp for comment. Stay tuned as the story develops.
Shortly after the news of Lil Baby's arrest broke, the rapper took to IG to seemingly address the incident and lets fans know that he's of custody.
The 24-year-old rapper says he didn't seriously pursue music until he was released from prison in 2016. Lil Baby had spent years behind bars on multiple charges, including possession of marijuana with intent to sell. Following his release, the ATL native inked a deal with Quality Control and released a number of projects, such as Perfect Timing, Drip Harder with Gunna, and his 2018 debut album Harder Than Ever.
