Offset Shares Confrontation With Cops On Instagram Live
Migos rapper Offset was detained by police on Saturday – and fans watched it all go down on Instagram Live.
Officers from the Beverly Hills Police Department repeatedly asked Offset, who was in a vehicle, to show his hands. “[I’m] Offset from the Migos,” he told them. “There’s 25,000 people on my Live.”
When an officer reached in to the vehicle to open the door, Offset protested: “I’m gonna sue the s**t out of y’all. Y’all know who I am?”
Offset claimed a Trump supporter he passed by “beat my car up with a flag.”
A spokesperson for the Beverly Hills Police Department said officers responded to a complaint about “a subject who pointed a weapon from a vehicle at him … the passerby provided a license plate to the vehicle, and the vehicle was stopped by patrol units a short distance away. After the on scene investigation, the passenger in the vehicle was arrested.”
Marcelo Almanzar, a 20-year-old cousin of Offset’s wife Cardi B, was arrested on charges of carrying a concealed weapon and carrying a loaded firearm in public. His bail was set at $35,000 U.S.
Offset was not arrested.
