Freddie Gibbs was due to take Stage Thursday in Toulouse, France when he was Arrested by local police.
They were acting on behalf of Austrian authorities who had an warrant out for Gibbs for an alleged 2015 rape.
The French authorities are evaluating the case, and will decide whether to extradite to Austria early next week.
Gibbs’s lawyer Scott Leemon (Yes, Troy Ave’s lawyer) released this statement:
“Freddie Gibbs adamantly denies the allegations that have been levied against Austrian authorities. It makes you wonder why it took almost a year for Austrian officials to bring these charge. Freddie will be fighting the extradition request as these are nothing more than trumped up charges.”
We’ll provide more details when they emerge.
