A recent music video by Yo Gotti has left officials in Henry County, Georgia upset.

According to reports, county officials are upset with Gotti over his music video for "Law," which was shot inside of the courthouse. Apparently, the rapper was never given official permission to shoot the video, which County Manager Lyndon Bonner says "does not represent the standards of what's Henry County." While the video shoot was said to be facilitated by local Councilwoman Sandra Vincent, she says a script was never received for the video.

Bonner, meanwhile, said the video "was not authorized by the Board of County Commissioners, nor my office.”

Now, county leaders are working on an official policy to decide what productions get the green light. “Had anybody been on the use side of it (and) said, ‘We saw this, saw the actors in the proposal,’ it most likely wouldn’t have been permitted,” Bonner said.

Gotti's "Law" appears on his latest album, The Art of Hustle.
