Local rapper Shy Glizzy was arrested in Silver Spring last night.
An onlooker captured the arrest in a video on Instagram, which shows Glizzy bent over the hood of a cop car while two officers search him and at least one other looks on. Some bystanders shout “Free Glizzy” as they watch; others yell “fuck 12,” a rebuke of the cops. Glizzy yells an apparent defense: “She put her hands over my mouth!” Watch the video after the jump.
Glizzy, born Marquis Amonte King, has paid bail and been charged with disorderly conduct, failure to obey lawful order, obstructing an officer, riot, and resisting arrest, according to an online record. (XXL first reported the news.) Arts Desk has contacted Glizzy’s management and will update this post when we hear back.
Update 7/29, 5:31 p.m.: According to an AP report, the arrest followed Glizzy’s confrontation with officers who were searching another man for drugs. Glizzy tried to stop the search, telling the officers they needed a warrant, and attempted to bring others into the dispute.
