A rep for the Dutch military police, who also handle airport security, accused Lennox of being aggressive towards airline staff. They also claimed Lennox was drunk in public.

“Our unit found a woman full of emotions, that wouldn’t calm down,” spokesman Robert van Kapel told Reuters. “That’s why she had to be taken into custody.”

At this point, it’s unclear when Ari Lennox will be released from police custody. As the investigation continues, police officials said that they’re looking into alleged threats made by the Dreamville singer during the incident.

In the moments leading up to the arrest, Ari Lennox claimed that it was a staff member from KLM airline that she had issues with. “Racism. Wow Amsterdam I’mhorrified. I was so happy to travel and this evil woman… I’ve never experienced racism so blatant,” she wrote.
