Police body cam footage shows that Skrillex was with Ty Dolla $ign at time of rapper’s drug arrest [Watch]
Skrillex made a cameo not on a Ty Dolla $ign track, but during the rapper’s recent arrest in Atlanta on September 5 — the same evening that Dolla was to jointly headline for G-Eazy‘s North American Endless Summer Tour at the Cellairis Amphitheatre. Newly released video footage from the arresting officer’s body cam shows Skrillex follow the rapper out of the car as Ty Dolla $ign exits his Mercedes van to speak with the officers present at the scene.
The footage captures Dolla’s admission that he smoked weed earlier in the day, in response to one officer’s comment that he smelled marijuana. The video also follows the officer’s pat down of both Skrillex and Ty Dolla $ign, but only one of the two artists would emerge unscathed. Police immediately arrested the rapper for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana and possession of cocaine after finding the drugs in Dolla’s bag. Ty Dolla $ign was released on bond on September 6, and is scheduled to appear in court on September 20.
