ATLANTA – A rapper said that police stopped him outside of an Atlanta bank after he withdrew hundreds of thousands of dollars on Friday.
Sam Benson, who goes by the name “Blac Youngsta,” said it all began when he stopped by a Wells Fargo bank on Peachtree Rd. NE.
Benson said he withdrew $200,000 in cash from his account. He said when he came out of the bank, a police officer pointed at him.
“They come bum rushing me at the car, put me on the ground, putting guns to my head, so I’m like ‘What I’d do,’” Benson said. “A lady was like I’m not supposed to have…$200,000 on me. I’m like, ‘I’m a millionaire. How can I not have $200,000 on me?’”
Benson said police apologized. He said police initially took $100,000 of his cash, but later said that he had gotten that money back.
The rapper said he had withdrawn the cash to buy a vehicle. Initially, Benson said he was in the market for a Maybach, but after the incident at the bank, he said he was thinking about a Ferrari.
“I’m feeling fast,” Benson said.

If I were him I'd stop going to that bank and sue them also, for having to go through that.
If I had such money in my account, I'd want nothing but royal treatment, not having the cops called on me! I'd be pissed.
Are cops now staking out banks waiting for people to withdraw large amounts of cash so they can take it from them?
A call was made to police by the bank’s manager, Fox 5 Atlanta reports.
Why the need for cash in hand to buy a car. Dealer won't believe he has money? Make the deal and get a bank check to pay.
