In  August of 2022, police in Ohio executed a raid of Afroman’s house.  They were looking for evidence of marijuana and drug paraphernalia related to drug possession and trafficking, as well as kidnapping.

The “Because I Got High” rapper wasn’t home during the search, which didn’t uncover anything to arrest him on.

But his wife was.  Afroman then used video she made of the raid and security camera footage to make music and music videos.

Now seven of the officers present during the raid are suing Afroman for unauthorized use of an individual’s persona, invasion of privacy by misappropriation, and invasion of privacy by false light publicity.

They argue that by showing their unblurred faces he has subjected them to ridicule and has made it more difficult to do their job.

Afroman argues that the raid was based on a “false warrant” and that the officers stole his money during the raid, which nullifies their right to privacy.

“My video footage is my property. … I am a law-abiding taxpaying citizens who was violated by criminals camouflaged by law-enforcement,” he said, adding in a statement from his lawyer that reads, “We are waiting for public records requests from Adam’s county we still have not received. We are planning to counter sue for the unlawful raid, money being stolen, and for the undeniable damage this had on my clients family, career and property.”

Here’s the video that upset the cops.
