First and foremost, Skrillex was not arrested. I tried to be as clear as possible about that in the headline, but it seems Skrillex got roped into a bit of trouble after Ty Dolla Sign and his team got pulled over in Atlanta.
Body Cam Footage Shows Both Skrillex and Ty Dollar Sign Present
In the video which is shown from a body cam POV, Ty Dolla Sign and Skrillex can both be seen among the group of individuals who were in the van. It appears that Ty Dolla Sign admits that a bag belongs to him, which contained both pot and cocaine. The rapper was arrested and taken into custody. Charges filed were for possession of cocaine and possession of marijuana, both under an ounce.
Skrillex appears to be calm and respectful throughout the entire encounter, as does the rest of Ty’s team. Below you can see a full break down of the video as well as commentary from a YouTuber who is familiar with legalese. According to him, depending on who claimed ownership of the bag, the case could be difficult to prove. We will see how this plays out over the next few weeks.
