Talk about racial profiling! A rapper, Sam Benson, who goes by the name “Blac Youngsta,” was stopped outside of a Wells Fargo bank in Atlanta by police after he withdrew $200,000 cash from his own account on Friday Jan. 8th.
He said when he came out of the bank, a police officer pointed at him. “They come bum rushing me at the car, put me on the ground, putting guns to my head, so I’m like ‘What I’d do,’ “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?’” The guy's interview about the incident is the best part of this story.
Sam said someone inside the bank had called the police after he made the withdrawal. He said police told him that someone had written a bogus check previously.
“They thought I did it too, but I’m legit. They confused me with whoever they were looking for.”
He said police initially took $100,000 of his cash, but later returned the money to him and apologized. Sam said he had withdrawn the cash to buy a Maybach, but after the incident at the bank, he said he was thinking about buying a Ferrari instead. He said he had $1.3million in his account.
When asked why he didn't give the car company a check instead, Sam said it's always been his dream to walk into a car dealership with cash, drop the cash on the table and point at the car he wanted.
