Hip-hop legend Dr. Dre was searched, handcuffed and briefly detained in a patrol car following a confrontation in front of his home in Malibu, Billboard reported.
The incident transpired Monday (July 25) afternoon after a man stopped his car in front of Dre’s house, blocking the driveway. The man said Dre shouted at him then pulled out a gun, so he called the cops.
Dre cooperated with police who arrived at the scene and allowed them to search him. He told them he didn’t pull a gun on the man, but that he reached for his cell phone to record the altercation, and officers found no weapon. It appears no charges were filed. Dre’s lawyers would not comment about the incident.
One of the wealthiest players in the rap game, Dre is worth more than $710 million, Forbes reported. The pioneering group Dre co-founded, N.W.A. was nominated into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.
