Waka Flocka Flame was arrested on Saturday by New York City police officers, but has since been released, according to reports. The ATL rapper was detained while on the road in Queens, New York, for marijuana possession.

Born in Queens, Flocka was reportedly apprehended by NYPD in a parking lot outside the Coliseum Mall in the NYC borough. The "No Hands" rapper took to Twitter yesterday to vent his frustrations.

“I’m finna jump on my flight 2 Kc ....... sorry 2 da whole m town 4 not coming I had spend a nite n jail with no charge #onlybecauseirap,” he tweeted.

Flocka later reassured his fans that he would keep things moving.

“Can’t no 1 stop with GOD got planned 4me [know that],” he said.

Flocka's release means that both he and Gucci Mane remain free to promote their buzzworthy collaboration album Ferrari Boyz, which comes out August 9. Gucci Mane was released from jail on July 8 after serving four months for a probation violation.


The duo recently released the album's first single, "She Be Puttin' On."
