Brooklyn Nets guard James Harden was detained and released by French police who arrested rapper Lil Baby in Paris as part of a narcotics investigation.
NBC News confirmed initial reports of Harden being held by police in Paris where prosecutor files show Dominique Armani Jones, aka Lil Baby, was arrested.
Harden was with a group of known celebrities during Fashion Week. He was only briefly detained and never taken into custody of police.
French newspaper Le Parisien pointed to a video taken by bystanders showing Harden and another man having their pants pockets searched by police.
Authorities first asked Harden and Jones to exit a car when they smelled marijuana, according to the incident report.
The newspaper said police entered the area at 4:50 p.m. local time to follow up on reports of men exiting a car that smelled like pot, which is illegal in France.
