In the police bodycam video, the 24-year-old Memphis rapper can be hear saying to the officer, “You don’t know who I am? I’m on your TV.”

Hip-hop recording artist GloRilla has been arrested for drunk driving in Georgia.

According to Billboard, the 24-year-old Memphis rapper was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, consuming/possessing an open alcoholic beverage container, and a separate traffic charge in Suwanee, Ga. She was detained after a police officer stated in a police report that he smelled marijuana and noticed an open alcoholic beverage bottle after stopping the “Wanna Be” rapper just after 4 A.M. ET on April 16. He said she confessed to drinking earlier that night.
When the police officers searched the car, they “located marijuana within the vehicle, along with an open alcoholic beverage bottle.” While being given a field sobriety test, the rapper’s breast was exposed, and the officers informed her.

According to 11Alive, a bodycam video was released by the Suwanee Police Department.

The footage shows the interaction between the GloRilla, real name Gloria Hallelujah Woods, and the police officer who pulled her over. She told the officer that she had just left the Opium nightclub in Midtown. The officer did tell her she smelled marijuana, and GloRilla told her that she did have some weed, but not enough for her to go to jail for.

At one point, she says to the police officer, “You don’t know who I am? I’m on your TV.” But the officer did not know, and the information didn’t seem to sway her.
When the officers went to arrest her, they removed her jewelry, then handcuffed her, and placed her in the back of the police car.  She was heard saying, “I don’t want to go to jail.”

Rolling Out reported that she was brought to the Gwinnett County Detention Center. After being booked and processed, she was released several hours later after posting a bond of $1,956. Her brother was with her in the vehicle on the passenger side.
