Cardi B had to be physically restrained on Saturday when she asked the Beverly Hills police to release her rapper husband Offset, who was arrested on suspicion of waving a gun to Trump supporters.
& # 39; This is my husband! Why are you pointing a gun at him? & # 39; she yelled when a friend held her back.
The rapper appeared in her new black Rolls Royce and watched Offset argue with officers next to his orange jeep.
The 28-year-old Offset tells officers who ask him to get away from the car: "I'm not going anywhere."
His wife then yells, "Let me record this."
When Offset is led away, she yells out loud: “No! That's crazy! My husband is not armed. My husband is not armed. & # 39;
He is then questioned by officers outside his car.

Almanzar was released a few hours later at 9:35 p.m. on bail of $ 35,000.
The saga began when Offset was stopped by officials in Beverly Hills on Saturday afternoon and filmed the incident.
In a video shared on his Instagram Live, the rapper refused to get out of his car while being questioned by police officers – one of whom pulled a gun.
That officer told Offset there was a report that he "waved guns at people" as he drove around. He replied that Trump supporters hit his car with a flag.

In a statement, the Beverly Hills Police Department told DailyMail.com that Almanzar was in fact arrested for the alleged crime.
The statement read: “Shortly after 5:00 pm, the Beverly Hills police received information from a passerby of a subject who pointed a gun at him from a vehicle. The passer-by put a license plate on the vehicle and the vehicle was stopped a short distance away by patrol units.
"After the on-site investigation, the passenger was arrested in the vehicle [Almanzar]."
Almanzar has now been accused of carrying a hidden weapon and a loaded firearm in public. He was released on Saturday night for a $ 35,000 bond.
It is unclear whether he attempted to intimidate or combat members of the pro-Trump rally. Cardi B is a prominent Joe Biden supporter.
