Cash Money Records singer Jacquees found himself in a bit of a bind on Wednesday (March 21) while in Miami’s South Beach that ended up in a hot debate on the internet regarding police use of excessive force.
According to TMZ, the “B.E.D.” artist was stopped by Miami Beach police for driving without a seatbelt. Officers claim that he refused to show his license during the traffic stop, causing the officer to ask him to get out of his Lamborghini. The site adds that the officers said he refused to walk with the officer along the sidewalk and yelled at them, “Do not touch me.”
One thing led to another, and the officer reportedly called for backup as piles of young, South Beach-vacationing bystanders gathered to witness the encounter. Judging by their verbal reactions to the events that took place next, they seemed just as bothered as the rest of the internet by the way the officers handled Jacquees afterward, which was filmed by someone standing nearby.

Smdh!!!... It's clear he was cooperating!... Cowards!— Still Kay💋 (@KelliCS1) March 22, 2018
I agree. Doesn’t give the officer the right to yank him around. If he dislocated that guys arm, are we having the same conversation? No. Just do your job and arrest him or give him a ticket or whatever. Don’t YANK his arm when he’s already handcuffed. Completely Unnecessary— Raymond A. (@TwOPnt0) March 22, 2018
