Offset Handcuffed While Cardi B’s Cousin Was Arrested For Possessing A Loaded Gun At Trump Rally In Beverly Hills
On Saturday, Offset was detained by police officers in Beverly Hills, California and the incident was recorded on Instagram live. Acccording to the DailyMail, Offset was involved in an altercation with Donald Trump supporters while driving through a rally.
Initially, the officers asked Offset to turn off the car’s engine, to which he refused: “I’m not doing no orders, you got guns out pointed at me, bro,” he replied. “I’m not doing that, because you got guns out. I’m not fittin to move my hand from my steering wheel.”
“There’s 25,000 people in my Live,” the Migos rapper told the officers before he was forced out of his car. “I’m gonna sue the sh*t out of y’all, do y’all know who I am?” “We were told that you guys were waving guns at people,” one of the officers said. “You just watched somebody beat my car up with a flag. What are you talking about?” Offset responded.

The rapper was later placed in handcuffs, as shown by videos recorded by onlookers. Cardi B was also at the scene as well.
In a statement, the Beverly Hills Police Department told DailyMail.com that it was actually Cardi B’s cousin, Marcelo Almanzar, who has been arrested over that alleged offense.
Shortly after 5PM, Beverly Hills Police received information from a passerby of 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 [Almanzar] was arrested.’
Almanzar has now been charged with Carrying a Concealed Weapon and Carrying a Loaded Firearm in Public. He is being held on a $35,000 bond.
It’s hard to tell whether he was trying to intimidate or antagonize members of the pro-Trump rally. Cardi B is a prominent Joe Biden supporter.
