Migos’ Offset was detained on Saturday October 24, in Beverly Hills following an incident which reportedly involved Trump supporters who were marching in the area.
Although video shows rapper Offset, née Kiari Kendrell Cephus being pulled out from his vehicle by policemen, authorities say he was not arrested, reversing course after earlier confirming the arrest.
In a clip shared online, an officer can be heard asking him to step out of the vehicle. “I’m not doing that, I’m not doing that. Because you’ve got guns out,” Offset says, with the officer replying, “That’s my choice.”
“I’m not going to move my hands from my steering wheel,” Offset then says, as a female officer tells him that they were told that he was “waving guns.”
“You know who I am? Offset from the Migos. They got fans, that’s why they’re following me,” the rapper replies.
However, the female officer states, “That has nothing to do with why we’re here. We were told that you guys were waving guns at people.” Offset then claims that they “watched somebody beat my car up with a flag.”
