Rapper Blac Youngsta was detained by Atlanta police after making a healthy bank transaction at a local Wells Fargo branch. After withdrawing $200,000, Youngsta and about eight other people were placed in handcuffs in the bank’s parking lot on the corner of Peachtree Drive and Piedmont Road. A call was made to police by the bank’s manager, Fox 5 Atlanta reports.
Youngsta spoke to the local news station about the experience, noting that police guns were drawn, his guns were confiscated by authorities, as well as half of the money taken out during the transaction. He said he was told to pick up the other $100,000 at the police headquarters after it was processed as evidence. He was also advised by police to be safe while carrying his wads of cash.
“What’s wrong with having $200,000?” Youngsta asked rhetorically. “It makes me feel like I can’t be young, black, and rich.”
After their investigation, police found that no crime was being committed. Youngsta said the large withdrawal was taken out to be used to purchase a new car, and that he would be taking his business away from Wells Fargo. Watch the rapper discuss the ordeal in the video below:
