Millionaire rapper and entrepreneur Dr. Dre was confronted by police outside of his Malibu home Monday after he became the apparent target of a man following a road rage incident.
Sources close to Dre told TMZ that the incident began when he arrived home and found a car parked in his driveway. Dre requested that the man move, which he did, but not before yelling obscenities at the rapper.
Dre then pulled out his phone to record the verbal attack, but the man accused Dre of pulling out a gun, saying, “Here we go again, another black guy with a gun.”
The man then called police, who arrived at the scene and promptly detained Dre. They released him after officers failed to find a weapon.
The man, however, was adamant in his claim of seeing a handgun, and decided to file a report.
It will now go to the district attorney’s office, which will determine if there is a legitimate case against the rapper. But according to Dre’s version of events, it is unlikely any charges will be filed.
It appears that the man, whose name was not released, attempted to use race to victimize himself, when he was, in fact, the one in the wrong. Sound off in comments.
