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 denies the accusation and says that he asked the man to leave because he had 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.
