Sam Benson aka Blac Youngsta, had just withdrew money from an ATL Wells Fargo bank to purchase a vehicle when local police arrested him for what appears to be another terrible case of discrimination.
The up and coming rapper signed to Yo Gotti‘s CMG label walked in a Wells Fargo location during a tour stop to withdraw $200,000 to purchase a Bentley S600 when he was confronted by police with guns drawn, claiming that he was identified as a bogus check scammer.

A rapper was arrested by police in the parking lot of an Atlanta Wells Fargo bank just moments after he withdrew $200,000 from his account to buy a supercar.
Black Youngsta – real name Sam Benson – posted an image to his Instagram account of Friday’s incident which shows him in cuffs with an officer standing over him.
The caption on the photograph reads, ‘Look at how they treat a young rich n*****’.
Atlanta police apologized afterwards and claimed it was a case of mistaken identity after they initially thought that Benson was a fraud suspect.
Benson told WXIA: ‘I come out the bank, I see the police, I’m walking to the car, I see one of them point to my bag like “him.”
‘They come bum rushing me at the car, and put me on the ground, put guns to my head, you know, so I’m like “What I’d do?”
“A lady was like I wasn’t supposed to have… $200,000 on me.
‘So I’m like, “I’m a millionaire. Like, how can I not have $200,000 on me?”‘
‘They said something about a bogus check, and they thought I did the bogus check too, but I’m legit.’
Police apologized to him, Benson told WXIA.
