An Atlanta rapper had just withdrawn $200,000 from the bank when he was surprised by police with guns pointed at his head.
Sam Benson, also known as “Blac Youngsta,” had withdrawn the money in order to pay for a new car, and he had just exited the bank when the police stopped him.
“I come out the bank, I see the police, I’m walking to my car, I see one of them point to my bag like ‘him,’” he said. “They come bum-rushing me at the car, put me on the ground, putting guns to my head.”
“I’m like ‘What I’d do,’” he continued. “A lady was like I’m not supposed to have $200,000 on me. I’m like, ‘I’m a millionaire. How can I not have $200,000 on me?’”
He posted an image of himself in handcuffs on the ground on Facebook.
He said that he wanted to pay for the car in cash because, he explained, “Where I come from,we don’t believe in taking checks to the car lot. We take cash money.”
A spokesperson for the Atlanta police department said that the police were responding to a call “at the request of the bank manager” but found when they arrived “that no crime had been committed.”
