Jacquees Arrested After Getting Stopped For Not Wearing Seatbelt In Lamborghini

Jacquees was arrested in Miami’s South Beach neighborhood on Wednesday (March 21) after police say he refused to pull over while driving his black Lamborghini, according to the Miami Herald.

Jacquees was instructed to pull over after an officer says he noticed the 23-year-old wasn’t wearing his seatbelt.

“The defendant did not obey my command and instead kept driving the vehicle at a low rate of speed with heavy traffic still northbound on Ocean Drive,” the arresting officer wrote in his report.

Jacquees — a native of Georgia — later asked why he was being pulled over.

“He was then asked again to pull over and to provide me with his driver’s license. The defendant once again refused to obey a lawful command from this officer,” the report added.

After pulling over, the Cash Money Records singer was asked to move to the sidewalk but police say he refused. Subsequently, large crowds of onlookers gathered and the arresting officer called for backup.

“Additional officers had to be requested in emergency mode due to the large crowd gathering and the defendant still not complying.”

Cardi B Says Sexual Harassment Of Video Vixens Goes Ignored

In what’s described by Cosmopolitan as Cardi B’s “most explicit interview yet,” the Bronx star offered her thoughts on the #MeToo movement.

According to Cardi, the campaign to bring awareness to sexual assault and harassment has yet to permeate the world of Hip Hop like it has Hollywood. She explained that video vixens have expressed similar treatment as those in the #MeToo movement, but have merely been brushed off.

“A lot of video vixens have spoke about this and nobody gives a f**k,” Cardi B said. “When I was trying to be a vixen, people were like, ‘You want to be on the cover of this magazine?’ Then they pull their dicks out. I bet if one of these women stands up and talks about it, people are going to say, ‘So what? You’re a ho. It don’t matter.’”
