Video obtained by TMZ shows the moment undercover police officers arrested Blueface as he was sitting on a bench outside the restaurant looking at his phone.

Plainclothes officers swooped in and cuffed him as his girlfriend, Chrisean Rock, watched in shock.

The “Thotiana” rapper was arrested on charges relating to a shooting near Las Vegas Boulevard and Sunset Road on October 8, police said.

He was booked at the Clark County Detention Center on open warrants for attempted murder with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm inside of an occupied structure.

Days after the shooting, he posted on Instagram a music video set in jail and a courtroom.

The rapper’s girlfriend, Chrisean Rock, was also handcuffed when police arrested Blueface.

Earlier this year, during a traffic stop in Hollywood, the rapper was arrested with a loaded gun. In 2019, he was also arrested for having a loaded, unregistered gun.

Blueface controversially filmed himself driving through Los Angeles’ Skid Row in 2019 and throwing stacks of $100 bills at homeless people who desperately scrambled to pick up the cash.
