Memphis Rapper Who Retrieved Shy Glizzy’s Chain Handcuffed For Withdrawing $200K Out Of Bank



Blac Youngsta, born Sam Benson, was detained by police Friday afternoon for withdrawing a large amount of money from a Wells Fargo bank in Atlanta, according to Fox 5 Atlanta.

Blac was exiting the bank when he says police swarmed him.

“I come out the bank, I see the police, I’m walking to my car, I see one of them point to my bag like ‘him,’” he said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “They come bum-rushing me at the car, put me on the ground, putting guns to my head.”



Blac and eight others were placed in handcuffs in the parking lot of the Buckhead bank.

“They put me in cuffs, put guns on me,” Blac said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “All type… I’m talking about everything. It was rough. They took my guns. All that. It got real. But they let me go. They told me to be careful with [$200,000] on you like that.”

“I’m like ‘What I’d do,’” he continued. “A lady was like I’m not supposed to have $200,000 on me. I’m like, ‘I’m a millionaire. How can I not have $200,000 on me?’”

Atlanta police said it was a misunderstanding.

Sgt. Warren Pickard told AJC someone from the bank called 911 to report a man was attempting to cash a forged check for $24,000. The caller’s description was “limited and conflicting,” but information about a possible suspect vehicle was relayed to officers.

“It was quickly discovered that the person providing the description to police had provided the wrong description of the suspect,” Pickard wrote in an emailed statement. “It was determined that the occupants of the vehicle were not involved. They were immediately released.”

Blac posted a photo of himself handcuffed onto Facebook, with a caption, reading, “Look At How They Treat A Young Rich N*gga.”



Blac said police confiscated $100,000 from him.

“It’s so crazy, they just took a hundred thousand of my money and made me put it back in the bank,” he told Fox 5. “They said they didn’t want me to leave with all of it. They gon keep some as evidence. I gotta go to the police precinct to get my other hundred thousand.”

Blac withdrew the money so he could purchase a luxury car.

“It make me feel like I can’t be young. Black and rich?’ I can’t be a millionaire? I can’t have this much money on me?”

Blac said the incident killed his mood and he plans to hold off on the car for now. He also stated he would be taking his banking elsewhere.
