T.I. Arrested Over Bike Incident in Amsterdam

T.I. was arrested in Amsterdam after a run-in with a police officer.

The Atlanta rapper took to Instagram on Tuesday (Aug. 3) to explain what happened. According to T.I., he was riding his bicycle when a cop pulled up alongside him and told him to stop using his phone. He slowed down as the officer proceeded to cut him off in his vehicle. In the process, the handlebar from T.I.s bike broke off the cops side mirror.

He was taken into custody, but wasnt placed in handcuffs. Instead, the officer invited him inside the police van.

So, Im locked up now, Tip later said while waiting in a holding cell. Im obviously not supposed to have my phone as Im biking, and because the policeman ran into me and broke his [side mirror], and because I didnt have my passport on me. I dont know, itll be fine.

While the officer was extremely upset, Tip seemed to be taking it all in stride. I, myself, was having a great time. Im still not upsetIm having a phenomenal time. They arrested me and didnt even put me in handcuffs. They just opened the door and invited me to the backseat. I obliged.

He tried to pay his bond with cash, but they would only accept credit. We working on the buddy system out here and I like it, he said.

Once he got his passport, he was released after 25 minutes and credited the love of my life Tiny for sticking by his side through it all. When a friend of his called the incident bullshit, T.I. was more forgiving. Everybody has a bad morning, he said.

T.I. has been traveling through Europe with his wife. The couple, who is under investigation for sexual assault, is celebrating their 11th wedding anniversary.
