In the footage, the police officer can be seemingly heard saying, “You are under arrest.”

Robert van Kapel, a spokesman for Dutch police told NBC News, “We can confirm that we have arrested a 41-year-old American woman at Schiphol Airport because of possession of soft drugs.” However, the spokesperson did not name the woman in question.

Another statement by the Dutch police given to the PA agency confirmed that the woman remained under arrest on Saturday evening.

In another post on X, formerly known as Twitter, the rapper claimed that her bags were seized by the security without her consent. In her post, she also shared that the authorities have claimed to find “weed” in her bag. This prompted another user to note that “weed” is legal in Amsterdam.
