Well-known rap artist and music mogul Andre Young, better known as Dr. Dre, was given a citation at his home in Malibu after a person claimed that Dr. Dre threatened him, a July 27 article of news.com.au reported.

According to reports, the 51-year-old former N.W.A. member was subjected to a lawful “citizen’s arrest” on July 25 after he was falsely accused of threatening a person with a gun. The person, whose name was not revealed, had reportedly parked his vehicle in front of Dre’s house when the incident occurred. Responding authorities handcuffed the rapper and questioned him inside a patrol vehicle. Dre told authorities that he was only getting his phone out to document the incident. Authorities confirmed that he was not armed with a gun during this time.
