MIAMI - Gazzy Garcia, better known as Colombian-American rapper Lil Pump, shared a video on Thursday afternoon showing four Miami-Dade Police Department officers surrounding him. 

Garcia, who turned 18 years old last August, was using an expletive while telling police officers that a bag didn't belong to him. One of the officers, whom Garcia referred to as "Bro," walked up close to his face to shout, "Calm down!"

Garcia continued to repeat in a lower tone of voice, "That's not my bag! That's not my bag!" 

"I don't care," the officer said taunting him. "It's your bag now."

Garcia didn't say when the video he shared with his 17.6 million followers on Instagram was recorded but in the video's caption he threatened to be getting ready to file a lawsuit.
