NBA superstar James Harden and rapper Lil Baby were stopped and searched by police in Paris, France.
The duo has been enjoying Paris Fashion Week in the city but were swarmed by police for a search which was captured by videos making the rounds on social media.
The Brooklyn Nets star told authorities he did not understand what was going on, while the rapper was handcuffed and placed in the back of a police van before reportedly being arrested along with another person on a marijuana-related charge.
Harden was not arrested and he was allowed to walk free, according to TMZ Sports.

Harden has been having an eventful offseason with rappers since the Nets’ exit from the NBA Playoffs.
Earlier this week, Harden was captured on video in a tickle fight with rapper Meek Mill as another rapper, Lil Uzi Vert, was breakdancing at an all-white party. Harden and Lil Baby were also seen looking high as hell before their arrest.
