In what appears to have been a case of mistaken identity, Ohio-rapper Kid Cudi and members of his entourage were momentarily arrested and held at gunpoint in Los Angeles.
Shortly following a photoshoot with NME Magazine at a Los Angeles store yesterday (December 21), the two SUV’s Kid Cudi and his entourage were traveling in were pulled over.
Cudi and crew were surrounded by a number of officers and police cars and ordered to get out of the SUV’s they were traveling in.
Upon realizing they had the wrong people police let the men go and revealed that they thought they were suspects wanted for a burglary that happened in the area.
“Who knows, really, the story changed a bunch,” Kid Cudi told NME. “I’m just happy to be back. I’m a free man! For that moment I was not free. I was in handcuffs. It did not feel very comfortable.”
Cudi also explained to NME that he has no hard feelings towards the cops and that “…a lot of shit goes down [in Los Angeles]. And these cops have to use force. So it’s, like, I understand that they were doing their job. I just wish we weren’t in that place at that time.”
