Watch: Guy Gets Arrested For Refusing To Give Cop His Sweet Tea

May 2, 2013 by  

If you’re in North Carolina, make sure you don’t make the mistake of drinking sweet tea in front of a cop: It could land you in jail.

On April 29, rapper Christopher “Xstrav” Beatty was placed under arrest for being unwilling to hand his can of AriZona Iced Tea to an undercover cop as he waited to meet some friends in front of a State liquor store.


 

The video of the incident was uploaded to YouTube with the following description:

Xstrav and Tino Brown at the ABC Liquor store located in Fayeteville North Carolina waiting for Money Mal to come so that they could purchase some liquor. Suddenly an undercover cop approaches the both of them and demands to see what Xstrav is drinking. X shows him that its an Arizona Half And Half Ice Tea, the undercover demands that he hands it over so that he can read the ingredients. Once Xstrav denies handing over his can the cop tells him to leave the property for trespassing. Out of nowhere an actual drunken stranger walks up starts giving shout outs and smelling like liquor…OBVIOUSLY drunk and he is just ignored and walks away without incident. Then the cop tells X to put his hands behind his back so X gets arrested for trespassing. This is just a classic case of a cop taking advantage of his power and arresting a another black man for not doing things the way HE wanted him to do them. X was asked to show him what is in the can…After showing the cop that it was an Arizona Tea, that should’ve been it but because he didn’t put it in the cops hand, the cop was upset and decided to put any charge on him.

Beatty was reportedly slapped with formal charges of Misdemeanor Second Degree Trespass and Misdemeanor Resisting Public Officer (read: not allowing himself to be harassed by a cop and pointed out that the officer was in the wrong).
