Drake Confirms He Was Arrested By Swedish Police

Drake Confirms He Was Arrested By Swedish Police

The rapper alluded to the incident by posting a document of an arrest warrant on Instagram.

Drake has confirmed that he was, in fact, arrested by police in Sweden after days of his team saying that it wasn't true.

The rapper recently posted an Instagram dump of some of his recent jaunts and included an image of what looked like a certification of arrest from Swedish authorities detailing his rights under arrest.

The document, issued by the Swedish feds - 'Polisen' - is titled Information for Those Suspected of a Crime and Subsequently Detained.

It explains Drake's rights under Swedish law, including the artist's right to know what he's being detained for, and the right to legal counsel.

The post included what looks to be an arrest warrant from Swedish authorities.

Drake is also allowed to contact his country's consulate and have messages sent and received on his behalf. It's unclear what the outcome of the arrest was but given he's included the photo of the document alongside a bunch of other more frivolous snaps it suggests it's probably amounted to little.

According to TMZ, the rumour is that Drake was arrested on marijuana related charges while partying at a Swedish club in the week - although it's something his team had strenuously denied.

Could it be that Drake's actually just having a laugh and posting a fake warrant in reaction to the rumour? It's hard to know.

One person who won't likely be impressed with his antics will be former Pink Floyd bassist and vocalist Roger Waters.

The veteran rock star recently hit out at Toronto media for not covering a recent show he played there. When it was put to him that there were bigger shows in town, such as Drake, he claimed that the musician wasn't as 'important' as he is.

The 78-year-old said to The Globe and Mail: "With all due respect to the Weeknd or Drake or any of them, I am far, far, far more important than any of them will ever be, however many billions of streams they’ve got. There is stuff going on here that is fundamentally important to all of our lives."

It's unlikely Drake will be losing any sleep over that, though, given his seventh album Honestly, Nevermind went to number one on the US Billboard charts recently. Including compilations and mixtapes, it marks Drake's 11th number one placing on the US Album Chart and comes despite some less than favourable responses to his change of style.
