Hip-Hop music producer Dr. Dre was involved in an alleged road rage incident in front of his Malibu home. According to TMZ, an unidentified motorist pulled in front of the music mogul’s home and blocked his driveway. When Dr. Dre arrived, he asked the motorist to move away from his driveway so he could get in it. The motorist complied with Dre’s request but decided to curse him out while doing so.
According to reports, Dre did not say anything to the outraged motorist; instead, he pulled out his cell phone to document the altercation. As soon as Dr. Dre pulled out his phone, the motorist allegedly yells out, “ Here we go again, another black guy with a gun.”
According to LA County Sheriffs, the motorist then called 911 and reported that someone had pulled a gun on them. When the police arrive, Dr. Dre was placed in handcuffs and searched. There was no gun found and Dre was let go. Unfortunately, the motorist insisted on making a citizen’s arrest, which consists of filing a report detailing his allegations. That will be forwarded to the District Attorney who will determine if there will be a case. So it looks like Dre is not out of the woods yet.
So what do you think about this situation? Should Dre have been handcuffed in front of his own house? Should Dre make a citizens arrest against the motorist? Let me know what you think in the comments.
