Joey Bada$$ Clears Up St. Louis Arrest Rumors

Stacy-Ann Ellis / October 30, 2013

Yesterday, several outlets reported that Joey Bada$$ and Ab-Soul were arrested (assumedly for marijuana-related reasons) at the St. Louis, MO stop on their Smokers Club Tour. An Instagram video (which has since been removed) showed a laughing Joey being handcuffed, questioning a police officer as to why he was being cuffed.

Bada$$ has officially come forward with a statement saying he was in fact not arrested, but momentarily detained:

New York rapper, Joey Bada$$, was detained by the St. Louis police on Monday, Oct. 28th 2013. While detained, the rapper was not arrested nor were drugs found on his person. Joey Bada$$ will continue on his United States tour as planned and will still be performing in St. Louis tonight.
