Tyga was handcuffed by the LAPD while he filmed a music video in South Central Los Angeles.
Tyga has been arrested in Los Angeles.
The rapper was reportedly in the process of filming a music video in a Rolls Royce with a group of men when police officers pulled them over and handcuffed the 'Rack City' hitmaker.
According to gossip website TMZ, it remains unknown why Tyga, 24, has been arrested after he was spotted up against a fence at the roadside in South Central surrounded by a group of LAPD officers and six police cars.
An eyewitness claimed that the star was pulled over for reckless driving, although it is not yet clear why he was handcuffed.
Tyga - who has a two-year-old son, King Cairo, with his ex-fiancee Blac Chyna - is reportedly dating 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star Kylie Jenner.
The pair fuelled rumours they were romantically involved after they were spotted enjoying a meal together at Japanese restaurant Kabuki in Hollywood on what it is said to have been a ''date'' last month.
A source close to the musician told TMZ that Tyga and Kylie are now ''dating'' but the insider insists their relationship is not physical because the raven-haired star is only 17.
