Lil Tjay Arrested On Instagram Live

Lil Tjay has been arrested for reckless endangerment and he captured the whole incident on Instagram Live for all of his fans to witness.

The incident went down in New York on Tuesday afternoon (June 6) when Tjay was shooting a short clip for a music video. Apparently cops arrived on the scene in Manhattan and hauled him off to jail, according to the rapper’s lawyer Dawn Florio (via TMZ).

While Florio made it clear that the arrest was not for possessing a gun, it is unclear what exactly prompted arrest.

“Nah. Do not touch me, bro,” Lil Tjay is seen telling officers on IG Live while standing next to his car. “What am I under arrest for?”

One of the officers then tells the Bronx native to turn around, but he refused. “No, n-gga,” Tjay responded. “No, bro. Hell no. What’s in the car? I don’t know what’s in the car. Don’t touch me. There’s no firearm in the car.”

Multiple officers then handcuffed and restrained him before escorting him away.

You can check out his IG Live video of the whole incident below.

The incident occurs days after Tjay got into a fight backstage at Hot 97 Summer Jam. A video of the Bronx rapper arguing at someone further down the hallway while being held back by security inside the UBS Arena in Elmont, New York, appeared online.

“You’re gonna be fired!” Tjay can be heard yelling while looking visibly upset and trying to confront the unnamed individual.

At the end of the clip, the person holding the camera said: “N-gga popped on Lil Tjay, bro.” It’s currently unknown who Tjay was directing his anger toward.
