T.I. found himself in more legal drama, but this time overseas.

On Tuesday (August 3), the 40-year-old rapper took to Instagram Live, while apparently in police custody in Amsterdam, to let his followers know he'd been arrested after an incident involving his bike and a cop car.

“So, I’m locked up now,” he began. “I’m obviously not supposed to have my phone as I’m biking, and because the policeman ran into me and broke his rear view[mirror], and because I didn’t have my passport on me. I don’t know, it’ll be fine.”

“He was extremely upset," Tip continued. "I, myself, was a great time. I’m still not upset, I’m having a phenomenal time. They arrested me and didn’t even put me in handcuffs. They just opened the door and invited me to the backseat. I obliged.”

The Atlanta native, who is in Europe with his wife Tiny in celebration of their 11th wedding anniversary, went on to explain that he tried to post bail himself —with a large wad of cash that he pulled from his pocket — but the police officers wouldn't take it. He said he ultimately had to call someone to bring him his passport before he could be released.

“We’re working on the buddy system out here, and I like,” T.I. shared.

The "Live Your Life" rapper and his wife are currently being investigated in the U.S. over several allegations of sexual assault and drugging.

Since January, dozens of women have come forward with sexual assault claims against T.I. and Tiny. The couple, however, has denied the claims against them.

If you or someone you know have been affected by sexual abuse, please reach out to The National Sexual Assault Hotline: 800.656.HOPE (4673).
