LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Four people were detained, and two of those men eventually arrested, after police responded to a report of a man with a gun in a parking structure at the Grove shopping center, a Los Angeles Police Department officer said today.
The entertainment news website TMZ reported the rapper Offset was among those detained.
The 28-year-old Offset, whose real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephius, is a member of the hip hop and trap music trio – Migos – and rapper Cardi B’s husband. He was detained, but not arrested on gun charges, LAPD Officer Lizeth Lomeli said.
TMZ obtained video that appears to show Offset being pushed against a wall and handcuffed by police.
The two people arrested were Carter Demetrius who was booked on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon, and Tremaine Benson who was booked on possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, Lomeli said. Their ages, bail and court information were not immediately available.
Officers responded to the Grove after the department received a 911 call at 7:18 p.m. and recovered two guns, LAPD Officer Mike Lopez said.
