Ari Lennox Arrested in Amsterdam "reacting to woman racially profiling me"
The R&B Singer was arrested at Amsterdam Schiphol airport on Monday for disturbing public order, Dutch military police said after she had accused airline staff of racial discrimination.
According to NBC; “I’m being arrested in Amsterdam for reacting to a woman racially profiling me,” Lennox tweeted on Monday morning, following a tweet in which she had accused “Amsterdam security” of hating Black people.
Dutch military police, who are responsible for security at Schiphol airport, said Lennox was held because of her aggressive behavior towards an airline official, and for being drunk in public.
“Our unit found a woman full of emotions, that wouldn’t calm down,” spokesman Robert van Kapel said. “That’s why she had to be taken into custody.”
It was unclear on Monday afternoon how long Lennox would remain in custody, Van Kapel said, as police were investigating claims of possible threats made by Lennox during the incident.
