Dr. Dre was handcuffed by sheriff’s deputies outside of his Malibu home after a bizarre incident with a man on the road, according to several reports.
It’s unclear when the incident took place, but the Associated Press reports that Dre was cited after a man claimed the producer pulled a handgun out on him. Dre says he didn’t pull a gun out and that he asked the man to leave because he’d been blocking his driveway.
TMZ reports that the motorist kept yelling at Dre, who recorded a portion of the incident on his phone. According to their sources, the man can be heard saying: “Here we go again, another black guy with a gun.”
The music mogul was handcuffed during the investigation and the motorist filled out a report of his allegations as part of a citizen’s arrest for misdemeanor brandishing a firearm. Deputies did not physically arrest Dre and no weapon was found on the scene. Now, the District Attorney will decide whether there’s a case against Dre.
The Los Angeles Times also reports that a source familiar with the case said Dre claimed the man followed him home from a freeway where “they had been involved in a road-rage-type incident.”
Dre’s rep declined to comment, according to Rolling Stone.
