drakeIt’s quite a turn of events after his team denied he was caught in Sweden — confirming that he had some sort of run-in with the police… but the details are still vague.
The rapper posted a series of photos on Sunday, which apparently documented his recent adventures – one of which was a photo of a printout he had been given by the Swedish authorities … he got into trouble.
The document was issued by the Swedish authorities, also known as Polisen, and is titled… “Information for Crime Suspects and Then Detained.” Well, at least it’s thorough.
It goes on to explain Drake’s rights under Swedish law — which are quite similar to Miranda rights someone was given when they were rounded up by the police here in the United States. As you can see, Drake has a right to know what he’s being held for, and a right to legal advice.
He actually has a few more rights, it seems, than the average American… or even Swedish citizen. The doc notes that he can contact his country’s consulate and have messages sent and received on his behalf. However, it seems that things have not gotten that serious in this case.
It was rumored that Drake was arrested this week on marijuana charges while partying at a Swedish club… and it sounds like he’s since been released in connection with that – hence why he posted this update. It is unclear whether he will have to go back to deal with this in court.
The strange thing… Drake’s team denied there was any truth to this story, amid speculation and the hashtag #FreeDrake going viral. Maybe they were nitpicking about semantics — like whether he was arrested or detained — but it’s clear something has gone wrong.
At least he seems to have had it easier than A$AP Rocky did. Thank God.
