Offset was released hours laters after two others detained from his entourage came forward and admitted the guns found were theirs. One person was arrested for carrying a concealed firearm and the other person was arrested for possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.
Offset described the incident as a misunderstanding as cameras captured the moment he was released.
