American rapper, Offset, recently had an altercation with some Beverly Hills police officers after he was pulled over on suspicion of waving a gun while driving through a MAGA rally in Beverly Hills on Saturday, October 24.
A video published by Daily Mail captured the moment his wife, Cardi B, confronted the cops hysterically, demanding that they release her husband. The 28-year-old rapper had to be physically restrained as she clamoured for her husband's release.
"That's my husband! Why are you pointing a gun at him?" she yelled, as she was held back by a friend.
Cardi B appeared on the scene as Offset argued with the cops beside his car. When asked to step away from his car, he turned down the request. Cardi can be heard screaming when Offset was being led away by the cops.
"No! This is crazy! My husband is not armed. My husband is not armed."
According to Forbes, police said in a statement that officers pulled the rapper over because his licence plate matched the description given by a witness of a man who brandished a gun at supporters at a Trump rally.

Almanzar was freed on a $35 000 bail (R569 000) and left custody at 9:35pm on October 24.
Briefly.co.za recently reported on the rapper after she deactivated her Twitter account. The music star, who has been known to be quite opinionated, was nowhere to be found on the microblogging site.
A search for her page with the username @iamcardib on Twitter brought up no results and said that the page did not exist. This was quite surprising seeing as the music star had been known to engage fans and to also comment on controversial issues.
There have been reports that the singer’s deactivated Twitter account was not unconnected to the fact that she has reunited with her husband, Offset. After reports made the rounds that the rapper couple were no longer getting a divorce, some fans did not seem too pleased with it and shared their opinions with Cardi B on Twitter.
