“You just watched somebody beat my car up with a flag – what are you talking about?” said Offset in response.

The Migos star continued arguing with police about his rights when an officer forced him to open his door.

“You’re going to get out of this car right now,” said another officer.

Offset told the officers that he was going to sue them, but they still pulled him out of the car.

Offset was also stopped in July 2018 for a traffic violation in Georgia. He was subsequently arrested and is faced multiple charges including improper lane change, marijuana possession, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.
