G-Eazy has been arrested in Sweden.

Video footage obtained by TMZ shows the "Him & I" rapper getting loaded into a police car in Stockholm, hours after performing in the city with his girlfriend, Halsey, on Wednesday night.

TMZ reports that G-Eazy was partying in a club and "acting belligerent" when security approached the rapper to get him to calm down. That's when G-Eazy allegedly "started throwing punches, striking one guard in the face," according to the site, which adds that when police then detained G-Eazy, they allegedly found cocaine in his pocket.

On Thursday morning, Swedish police confirmed to The Blast that an American citizen was arrested in the early hours of May 3 "on a charge of assault."

"Police say it appears the assault involved an official or employee at the club," the site states.

G-Eazy is reportedly still in custody.

According to videos on social media, G-Eazy was at the club in Stockholm with Halsey and Sean Kingston before the arrest.

G-Eazy is next scheduled to perform in Copenhagen on Sunday, May 6.
