Singer Yanked from Car for Alleged Fake Diplomatic Tag

Singer Removed from Vehicle over Suspected Fraudulent Diplomatic License Plate

On a sunny day in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, Latin singer Cecilia Selina Mercado, known by her stage name Sessi, faced an unexpected turn of events. The 32-year-old artist found herself in a predicament during a traffic stop when police officers arrested her. The reason? She was accused of driving with a fake diplomatic license plate, a story that made headlines in the New York Post.

During the traffic stop, when officers requested her driver’s license, Sessi presented her passport instead, claiming she had “immunity.” A video capturing the incident reveals a tense moment as an officer reaches into her car, unlocks the door, and attempts to escort her out of the vehicle.

The situation escalated quickly. A bystander, identified as Scott Huss, recorded the encounter, voicing his concern for Sessi’s safety and asserting that the officers had no jurisdiction over her since she was not a U.S. citizen. He even predicted a hefty lawsuit win for Sessi. Despite his protests, the officers proceeded to remove Sessi from her car, leading to her visibly shocked reaction as she landed on the pavement.

Shortly after, Sessi was seen being restrained against the vehicle as officers placed her under arrest. The incident sparked a flurry of reactions on social media, with opinions divided. Some pointed out the jurisdiction of the Sunny Isles Beach Police Department, while others expressed disbelief over the situation.

Following her arrest, Sessi was released on a $2,500 bond. Despite the charges against her, which include having a counterfeit registration, license plate, or sticker on a motor vehicle, she maintained that her plates were legitimate. Adding to the intrigue, her boyfriend, Andres Lopez-Escobar, was also implicated when he arrived to pick her up from jail in a car with similarly questionable diplomatic plates.

In a related development, 22-year-old Lopez-Escobar found himself under arrest in Sunny Isles Beach. His arrest came after a tense standoff with police, who had to break the driver’s window when he refused to cooperate. Inside the vehicle, officers discovered several firearms, leading to charges against Lopez-Escobar that included driving without a valid license and possessing counterfeit vehicle documentation.

This incident has certainly stirred conversations and raised questions about diplomatic immunity, the use of counterfeit plates, and the actions taken by law enforcement. As the story unfolds, it remains to be seen how it will ultimately be resolved for Sessi and Lopez-Escobar.
