Fiets fail: American rapper arrested after hitting Dutch police car with a bike

It’s not the best start to your holiday when you hit a cop car while cycling — but is it worse if you’re a celeb?

Clifford Harris, who goes by the stage name T.I., was arrested by Amsterdam police on Tuesday for this very crime. 🚨

The American rapper was briefly taken into custody after colliding with a police vehicle, Harris explained on Instagram.

The American rapper is currently on holiday in the Netherlands with his wife after celebrating their 11th anniversary. (“Happy wedding anniversary, honey! I got arrested. 💍 “)

Harris was originally called out by Dutch police for using his phone while cycling, after which bumped into the police car, breaking a wing mirror. And we thought we were struggling with biking. 😅

T.I. took to Instagram after being arrested. “It’ll be fine,” he says in the video. “The officer was very concerned, but I was having a good time. They didn’t even handcuff me, they asked if I wanted to get in the car and I listened to that”.

He goes onto to say that he was taken into custody when he couldn’t provide a form of ID. In the video, he also claims that the police car ran into him while he was on his bike.

He later reported that he had paid his bail and is now free from custody.
