Lil Baby and James Harden were detained in Paris as cops swarmed to two celebrities.
Multiple news reports say the rapper and his long-friend caught a spoke in their wheel while on their fashion week getaway to the romantic city. The reason for the arrest is yet unconfirmed as various U.S news sources report that the Paris police are investigating the incident.
Videos shared online by French fans show the rapper sitting in the back of a police car that took him to the local police station. The vehicle is surrounded by police officers and curious fans who called to the rapper.
The men were detained around 4:50 pm on Thursday at 33 Avenue Montaigne while the men were out and about exploring Paris.
