Drakeo The Ruler was arrested after his Uber driver was pulled over for having tinted windows.

Drakeo the Ruler was arrested during an Uber ride, in which his driver was pulled over for having tinted windows, Sunday. He recorded the interaction on Instagram Live.

Jeff Weiss detailed the incident on Twitter, postulating that it was an ambush by police: "The LAPD pulled him over for riding in the back of an Uber with tinted windows. He was with his son. A set up if I've ever heard of one. Who ever heard of someone get pulled over on a Sunday morning at 11 a.m. with their toddler son, while riding in the back of an Uber, WHOSE ONLY VISIBLE CRIME WAS HAVING TINTED WINDOWS? It would be ridiculous if it wasn't so glaringly sinister."

He also theorized that police have been following Drakeo's every move.

Back in 2020, the rapper took a plea deal that saw him finally released after serving three years in prison. He had been serving time for murder charges which were dropped; however, a judge refiled for charges of criminal gang conspiracy and shooting from a motor vehicle, meaning he would have to wait behind bars until his trial.

Saturday, Drakeo released his new diss track, "IngleWEIRD."
