Rapper Offset was arrested by police while driving through a Trump rally in Los Angeles.
The 28-year-old recorded that he was stopped by officers in Beverly Hills on Saturday afternoon.
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.
The rapper's wife, Cardi B, was also seen in videos recorded by bystanders.
In a statement, the Beverly Hills Police Department told DailyMail.com that it was indeed Cardi B's cousin, Marcelo Almanzar, who was arrested on this alleged crime.
Shortly after 5 p.m., 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]. & # 39;
Almanzar has now been accused of carrying a hidden weapon and a loaded firearm in public. He's holding a $ 35,000 bond.
It is unclear whether he attempted to intimidate or combat members of the pro-Trump rally. Carbi B is a prominent Joe Biden supporter.

It is unclear whether Almanzar was in the same vehicle as Offset.
During Offset's livestream video he could be heard telling officers, “I am a king, do you know who I am? I'm offset from [hip-hop trio] Migos & # 39 ;.
He continued, “You told me to put my hands up, I won't do that. There are 25,000 people in my livestream [watch]. You are being publicly sued. & # 39;
Another police officer then tried to reach into Offset & # 39; car and open the door from the inside.
