A passenger in a car driven by Migos rapper Offset was arrested in Beverly Hills, California on Saturday evening on charges of carrying a concealed, loaded firearm in public, police said.

The Beverly Hills Police Department tweeted that 20-year-old Marcelo Almanzar is being held on a $35,000 (Dh128,553.6) bail.

Offset live-streamed himself being questioned by police on his Instagram account. The video has since been deleted and he was later released. Police said they received information from a passer-by about a person who pointed a weapon at him from a vehicle, which patrol units stopped and investigated.

Officials added that reports that Offset had been arrested were inaccurate.
