Last night, Offset was apprehended by the police in Beverly Hills, California, while the “Clout” rapper, Cardi B, and Cardi’s cousin were at a Trump rally. Offset was in the middle of a live-stream when the police nabbed him, and he subsequently captured the entire interaction.
Cardi B made it back to the scene not long after a police officer grabbed Offset and dragged him out of his vehicle. TMZ then reported that while Offset and Cardi B are doing just fine, Marcelo Almanzar, Cardi’s cousin, was arrested on charges of carrying a concealed firearm.
The outlet also claims Offset was later released from police custody, and the paparazzi spotted him walking up to the “Bodak Yellow” rapper’s vehicle. Since then, the BHPD released a statement confirming that it was Cardi’s cousin who was arrested for carrying a weapon in public, and Almanzar’s bail was set at $35,000.
The police officers confirmed that Offset was never actually arrested by the cops, instead, he was merely detained. Reportedly, the police’s statement claimed they received a call that someone in the vehicle had pointed a weapon at them.
The passenger was subsequently arrested, but the victim chose not to press charges. As it was previously reported, Offset was detained by cops this past evening after the authorities accused them of waving a gun out of the window.
Offset told the cops he had just seen someone beating on his car with a flag, but he chose not to do anything about it. Moreover, Offset told the officer that it “was not legal” for him to try and open the car door from the inside.
This all comes after the news that Cardi B and Offset just rekindled their romance after splitting up earlier in the year. Cardi and the Migos performer were in the headlines for a number of reasons related to their breakup, including their child, Kulture Kiari.
Initially, it was reported that Cardi wanted primary custody as well as child support, but she later amended her petition in a court of law.
