MIAMI (WFLA) – A Florida rapper was arrested in Miami for eluding law enforcement and recklessly operating a jet ski on Sunday.

According to an arrest affidavit, Nehemiah Harden, 19, also known as “SpotemGottem,” of Jacksonville was arrested in Miami after official noticed a jet ski in a restricted speed zone, with posted signs.

Harden allegedly then began doing “S” turns near anchored boats.

The responding official got Harden’s attention, and the official called Harden over for a traffic stop, according to the arrest affidavit.
