Tyga was handcuffed overnight in Hollywood.
The 27-year-old musician was driving his custom Mercedes G-Series after a night out at Avenue Nightclub. He was pulled over on the corner of 1600 North and Cherokee Avenue for running a stop sign and having no license plates. After talking to several officers, Tyga voluntarily left his car. He was then handcuffed and put into a police car. Asked why he was being arrested, the rapper told the paparazzi, “Because I have paper plates.”
According to the rapper, it’s a new vehicle. “I just bought it,” Tyga said.
The L.A.P.D. confirmed Wednesday that Tyga was pulled over for having paper plates and traffic officers at the scene decided at the time to conduct a field sobriety test. Because of the paparazzi situation, the police officers transported the rapper to the Hollywood station to conduct it. He passed the field sobriety test and was released with a traffic violation.
