Offset gets detained by police at Trump rally
While on Instagram live this Saturday, Offset captured an altercation with the police while attending a Trump rally. The rapper was filming himself driving through the rally, before being asked to pull over by police.
The Migos rapper took to his Instagram while driving through the rally and captured the moment police asked him to get out of his car. The rapper refused and said he wouldn't get out of the car because "you got guns."
One of the police responded to Offset by saying, "We got reports you were waving a gun in the window."
The rapper continued with a rebuttal, "You just watched somebody beat my car up with a flag. What are you talking about? You told me to put my hands up, I’m not doing that. There’s 25,000 people on my live. You’re going to get sued publicly."
The police officer then kept trying to open the door to Offset's car, to which he reminded the police that's not legal if they do not have a warrant.
Before the live cut off, Offset was seen being grabbed by police by his wrists, saying that they were squeezing them extremely hard.
The stream ended there before it was reported that Offset was seen later that day walking over to Cardi B's car when she arrived on the scene.
A statement to the Beverly Hills Police Department clarified that Cardi's cousin, Marcelo Almanzar, was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, with his bail set to $35,000.
The person who had reported Almanzar for carrying a weapon clarified that they would not like to press charges.
Offset then later thanked his fans in a statement to ET.
"Artist and philanthropist Offset was detained by the Beverly Hills Police Department following an attack by aggressive Trump supporters. He was released shortly thereafter," it read.
It continued, "Offset thanks his fans for their support and wishes everyone peace and safety during these trying times. He encourages everyone to get out and vote because nothing changes if nothing changes."
The official voting date will take place this upcoming November 3.
