American rapper, T.I. was arrested on Tuesday, August 3, in Amsterdam, after the bike he was riding collided with a police car, knocking off its wing mirror.
The Live Your Life rapper recorded a video from his cell in the Dutch capital explaining the reason why he was arrested.
“I’m obviously not supposed to have my phone as I’m biking, and because the policeman ran into me and broke his [side mirror], and because I didn’t have my passport on me.
“I don’t know, it’ll be fine. It’ll be fine, but he was extremely upset.”
He added: “I’m still not upset – I’m having a phenomenal time. They arrested me and didn’t even put me in handcuffs. They just opened the door and invited me to the backseat. I obliged.”
T.I., real name Clifford Harris Jr, said his short stay behind bars, which he later revealed lasted 25 minutes, was part of the culture of the country, adding: “This is living life to the fullest, in the moment.”
He is currently in the Netherlands for his 11th wedding anniversary celebrations with wife Tiny.
