In video footage that has made the rounds on social media, Metro was handcuffed after apparently throwing $ 10,000 in cash on stage during its launching ceremony at Langston Hughes High School in Fairburn, Ga., About 25 minutes from Atlanta .
In a nearly one-minute clip, Metro is being detained by suspected officers from the Fulton County Schools Police Department. A male voice is heard saying: “At graduation”. The man then yells at Metro to hand him a big wad of cash as one of the officers who made the arrest orders the 18-year-old rapper, born Marques Smith, to do the same. The same officer then informs the man behind the camera that Metro will not be leaving the ceremony with the graduating class. The man obliges as the people start chanting “Let Him Go”, which the graduate crowd can hear.
On Sunday May 23, video footage of the Metro Marrs arrest was shared on his Instagram page, with a caption that reads: “#freeme y’all tag @theshaderoom in the comments # classof2021 I love yallll !! (This is his management team) #freemetro it will be out in a few hours. “
According to his team, the rapper was “arrested / detained for a few days”. However, at the time of the report, arrest records were not accessible to confirm the incident.
It is not known if the incident was planned or if Metro Marrs’ decision to rain was impromptu.
XXL contacted the Fulton County Schools Police Department for comment on this.
