Clifford Joseph Harris Jr., also known as TI, is back in Los Angeles after vacationing with his wife Tiny in Amsterdam. There, the 40-year-old rapper was arrested by the police after he drove his bicycle through a red light. But in the end it all went well, he told ‘TMZ’ at the airport.
“Here in America you have to immediately fear for your life”
“It was all very blown up, because there wasn’t that much going on. As I said before, I was very surprised at the relaxed approach of the Amsterdam agents, who didn’t even try to draw their weapons. It wouldn’t have been necessary for such a minor offense, but here in America you have to immediately fear for your life. That was an eye-opener,” said TI
He continues: “The fact that the officers and I couldn’t understand each other caused miscommunication. I didn’t understand the accent of the officer who spoke to me, it was a kind of mix of English with Dutch, at least I think. I didn’t immediately think he was a cop. In America, these kind of men come up with a little more fanfare, so to speak. Then you immediately know that it is wrong and now I was actually quite nicely received. I was not handcuffed and was allowed to getting in the car yourself. We are not used to that in America.”
