Offset arrested following confrontation with police filmed on Instagram Live
Offset streamed the confrontation on IG live
Offset went live on Instagram on Saturday to chronicle a confrontation with police in Beverly Hill. He was allegedly arrested.
Over 35,000 people were watching the live video on Instagram when the incident occurred.
“Because you got guns out – I’m not finna move my hands from the steering wheel,” the rapper said.
It is not immediately clear why he was pulled over, but the police officers in the video said that they were told the rapper or people around him, were waiving guns around.
“You just watched somebody beat my car up with a flag – what are you talking about?” said Offset in response.
The Migos star continued arguing with police about his rights when another officer forced him to open his door.
“You’re going to get out of this car right now,” said the officer.
Offset told the officers that he was going to sue them, but they still pulled him out of the car.
A rep for the rapper released a statement saying he was eventually let go.
Offset was also stopped in July 2018 for a traffic violation in Georgia. He was subsequently arrested and faced multiple charges including improper lane change, marijuana possession, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.
After his 2018 arrest, Offset was released on $17,000 bail. His wife, Cardi B, received gifts from Dior, Louis Vuitton, Saks Fifth Avenue as an apology.
