12-year-old rap sensation Corey J was arrested in a Georgia mall on October 6 for selling his CDs.
The disturbing video shows an officer with a grip on the young boy as his aunt pleads with the officer to let go of him and speak with his father, who was on the phone.
Corey, who was as calm as a child would be in that situation tried to pry his arm away from the officer, who warned him he was going to “go to jail or a youth detention center.”
The situation escalated quickly when Corey’s aunt tried to intervene and was knocked to the ground by the officer.
Watch the madness below.

The young rapper took to social media to share his thoughts about the incident writing:
It’s jusssss like this! When God is blessing you?? Tha Devil??♂️ is always rite around tha corner to seek & destroy. Tha fact that he snatched me & was trying to drag me around like I’m sum criminal that’s stealing, robbing or killing or sum is #Crazy. But tha worst part is he trying to charging me with a #felony putting my hands on a #PoliceOfficer he say I tried to brake his fingers, he say I cussed him & he say I pushed him!
Where in this video do it show I did anything but tell him I know my rights & then when he proceeded to try and drag me my auntie stepped in & got in between us to get tha #Police off me, cause he was treating me like uh lil rag dog he can sling around….
All #Police is not bad, a lot are good friends of mines. But it’s some of you that do not deserve to be in a #PoliceUniform & this guy is clearly 1!!! Right is Right / Wrong is Wrong!! #CobbCounty #Police We must get to tha bottom of this… I’m just a kid out here standing for tha right & Motivating other kids in a positive way. Why try to destroy & bring me down!?!???♂️??♂️
This is the America we live in. I’m happy he’s alive to tell his story.
