New Video Reveals Rapper's 2022 Speeding Arrest and Legal Troubles
Playboi Carti, the rapper, got into some serious trouble last year. He was caught driving super fast – like, 130 MPH fast – and there's now a video of it. This YouTube channel, Raq Rarest, got hold of the police bodycam video from when it happened on September 21, 2022.
In the video, you can see the police stopping Carti and telling him to turn off his car and put his hands out the window. When the police asked him why he was going so fast in a 55 MPH zone, Carti said he had an "emergency" and needed to get somewhere fast.
The officer wasn't having it, though. He didn't believe Carti's emergency excuse and ended up arresting him.
Check out the video below to see it all go down.
This speeding arrest wasn't really known until now, but Carti got into more trouble three months later. He was accused of choking his pregnant girlfriend during an argument. She said Carti grabbed her and pushed her into some bushes while two guys who worked for him just watched.
Carti's real name is Jordan Carter, and he said through his lawyer that these charges are false. His lawyer also said that the case will be dismissed and there won't be any trial.
Iggy Azalea, who has a kid with Carti, talked about his arrest too. She said she's been through similar stuff with him. In a now-deleted post, she said something about Carti not being around for their son much and having issues with treating women badly.
Carti hasn't said anything about this speeding arrest yet.
