TMZ has released a new story on Thursday claiming to have obtained three different police reports from 21 Savage's recent arrest in Atlanta.

The police reports — according to TMZ — state that 21 had a "fully loaded glock" in the lockbox of the red dodge challenger he was pulled over in. The rapper was also allegedly driving recklessly on a sidewalk in order to get onto another street, at which point police pulled him over.

The publication also notes that ATF were on the scene as well, and ordered the Atlanta-based rapper to drop his keys. After stopping, 21 was handcuffed and taken away by the ATF.

The firearm was allegedly listed in the inventory section of the police report. Notably, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), who are currently holding Savage, were reportedly also on the scene, but are not listed in the police reports.

21's attorney Brian Steel reportedly told TMZ that "both the Glock and the Dodge the rapper was driving are not his."

The arrest occurred this past Sunday, February 3rd. 21 Savage is currently still detained by ICE, who claim the rapper is a U.K. national who is illegally living in the United States. His attorney on the case — Charles H. Kuck — issued a statement on Monday saying that 21 was arrested on "incorrect information about prior criminal charges."

UPDATE: TMZ now reports that Alex Spiro — JAY-Z's attorney who is helping on 21 Savage's case — has released a statement contradicting the report's claims that the ATF arrested 21 Savage. Spiro says that the rapper was never arrested by the police.

Read below.

"ICE has confirmed he was targeted for immigration enforcement and nothing more. He was never arrested by the police, and some other individual's firearm and vehicle is not our concern here,"

This story was updated at 3:43 p.m. on Thursday, February 7, 2019 to include a statement from Alex Spiro.
