R&B Singer Jacques Arrested In Miami Beach For Ignoring Officer

R&B singer Jacquees was arrested in South Beach Wednesday after police say he failed to obey instructions from an officer.

The 23-year-old singer-songwriter, whose full name is Rodriquez Jacquees Broadnax, was driving a black Lamborghini along Ocean Drive around 4:30 p.m. when an officer noticed he was not wearing a seat belt, according to authorities. The officer attempted to pull Jacquees over, but he kept driving, an arrest report said.

The officer caught up with Jacquees, and he was asked to pull over and hand over his driver's license. When he refused, the officer asked Jacquees to leave his vehicle, the report said.

The officer asked Jacquees to walk over to the sidewalk so they could talk, but Jacquees refused and told the officer, "Do not touch me," the report said. 

Concerned for his safety, the officer called for additional officers and then arrested Jacquees, the report said.

"If the defendant would have complied since he was being pulled over, this incident could have been avoided," the report said.

Jacquees is known for his 2016 single "B.E.D."  He has worked with other pop stars, such as T.I. and Chris Brown.
