SpotemGottem arrested after trying to flee cops on jet ski


Florida rapper SpotemGottem was arrested on Sunday June 26 for allegedly trying to flee a cop on a jet ski in Miami.

According to an arrest report obtained by rolling stone. At the time of his arrest, he was on bail for a case involving charges of aggravated assault and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Representatives for Harden did not return immediately rolling stone‘s requests for comments.

According to the arrest report, an officer spotted Harden near Miami Marine Stadium, allegedly accelerating on his jet ski through a restricted speed zone and performing “S-type turns near anchored boats.” The officer claimed they turned on their emergency equipment, caught Harden’s attention, and attempted to call him for a traffic stop. Harden then allegedly “accelerated” and “began to swerve through boats near swimmers and anchored boats”.

The report claims that Harden “deliberately refused to stop and continued to flee”, although he was eventually apprehended. The report states that Harden “shown a willful and indiscriminate disregard for the safety of life and property (boats) at a speed or in a manner that endangered himself and others.”

Last summer, Harden was arrested in a hotel room by U.S. federal marshals for his alleged role in an assault case in June involving a deadly weapon. Police say Harden and others confronted a garage attendant for an $80 charge and that Harden allegedly pointed a gun with a laser at the employee from the backseat. This incident prompted the aforementioned aggravated assault and possession of firearms charges, to which Harden pleaded not guilty.

Two months after his arrest last year, Harden was shot in the hip while driving on a Miami freeway. Harden was apparently driving when the car was hit by gunfire, leaving 22 bullet holes on the driver’s side. Another man, seated in the back of the car, was shot in both legs.
