As 21 Savage continues to fight for his freedom amid allegations of an unlawful presence in the United States as a United Kingdom National, TMZ has released new details about his arrest.
In police reports obtained by TMZ, Georgia officials said the rapper was driving recklessly toward a fully-marked cop car prior to his federal arrest on Sunday.
Police say 21 was in a red Dodge Challenger that reportedly jumped a curb before cops approached the vehicle, accompanied by ATF agents. The rapper was then ordered to stop the car and toss the keys out of the window, to which he complied, reportedly throwing out a bottle with an unknown substance in the process.
When the rapper emerged from the vehicle, he was arrested and the car was searched, which, according to police, turned up a fully loaded glock connected to 21.
According to reports, the gun was found in the glove box in the car that the rapper was driving, and in the center console, officials found a styrofoam cup with an unknown substance.
However, despite the details of the arrest, it remains unclear how ICE got involved, as sources told TMZ the federal agency took 21 directly into custody. While a slew of agencies were present and on the scene, no documents report ICE was on the scene.
To make matters worse for 21, according to TMZ, it appears he was just at the wrong place at the wrong time, since another rapper, Young Nudy, who was driving another car alongside 21, was the reported target of the operation. In fact, a third car was also involved in the sting operation, which included a man named Kalil Smith, who was driving with a rifle in his floorboard.
However, the rapper’s lawyer, Brian Steel, says neither the car or the gun belonged to 21.
