Offset was detained while driving through a crowd of President Donald Trump's supporters in Beverly Hills, which the 28-year-old rapper captured on Instagram Live, according to videos shared on social media.

In a live video shared to the Migos rapper's personal Instagram account, Offset is sitting in the front seat of a vehicle, telling police he won't move his hands from the steering wheel because they have guns out. 

"We were told that you guys were waving guns at people," an officer says.

"You just watched somebody beat my car up with a flag," Offset responds.

The officers instruct the rapper to turn off his car and unlock the doors. He says, "You can't just open my door, it's illegal."

The officers reach into the car and open the doors, grabbing Offset and pulling him out of the vehicle, while he asks why they're grabbing him so aggressively.

The video sparked people on social media to conclude Offset had been arrested. However, according to a statement from the Beverly Hills police obtained by Insider, reports the rapper was arrested are inaccurate.

The statement said the police received a call from a person who said someone in a vehicle had pointed a weapon at them. When police responded, Offset was detained and released, while a person he was with was arrested on charges of carrying a concealed weapon and a loaded firearm.

In a tweet, Philip Lewis of the Huffington Post said that person, Marcelo Almanzar, is Cardi B's cousin.

Videos shared on social media showed that Offest's wife, fellow rapper Cardi B, had arrived at the scene following the livestream.

Others also showed the area full of people, including some carrying signs for President Donald Trump.
