Harden and several other men were swarmed by cops during an apparent search on the popular Avenue Montaigne. In one video circulating on social media, the Brooklyn Nets superstar can be heard saying he doesn’t understand what’s going on as cops begin to search him.
Baby was seated in the back of a police van and appeared to be handcuffed … local reports say he was among 3 people arrested for some sort of marijuana-related charge. The report said the vehicle the men were traveling in was pulled over and officers could smell marijuana. There were allegedly 20 grams of weed discovered.
According to @LeParisien, it appears that Parisian police stopped James, Lil Baby, and another man after smelling marijuana in their vehicle. James was not arrested during this incident. However, Baby & the other man were taken into custody by the Narcotist Transport Chief. pic.twitter.com/9S2Xwg4JKP
