Dr. Dre was involved in a dispute outside of his Malibu residence that escalated into a run-in with the law on Monday (July 25) afternoon. According to a report from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s office, deputies were called to the scene by a motorist claiming that the 51-year-old producer had pulled a gun on him. Upon the arrival of authorities, Dre was handcuffed, but a search turned up no weapon.
The incident occurred when Dre returned home but was prevented from parking due to a vehicle blocking his driveway. At his request, the stranger did move, but not without exchanging obscenities with the 51-year-old rap music legend. With the accuser allegedly continuing to mouth off, Dre reportedly pulled out his cell phone to record the taunts, at which point witnesses claim to have heard him say, “Here we go again, another black guy with a gun.”
TMZ reports that the Aftermath boss was able to record the final moments of the dispute. In the absence of a supposed fire arm, deputies did not honor the man’s demand that Dre was placed under citizen’s arrest, but he did fill out paperwork. That driver’s report is in the process of being reviewed by the D.A. to determine whether there is substantial evidence to make a case.
