Dr. Dre cited after man says the rapper pointed a gun at him

MALIBU, Calif. — Dr. Dre has been cited after a man says the rapper pointed a handgun at him.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says the man told them he was parked outside a Malibu, California, home when Dre ordered him to leave and showed a gun.

Dre, whose real name is Andre Young, told sheriff’s deputies he didn’t have a gun and that the man was blocking his driveway. He says the man moved his car but parked nearby. He says the man drove off after Dre recorded video of him.

Dre was briefly handcuffed while deputies investigated. No weapon was found at the scene, but deputies say the man initiated a citizen’s arrest for misdemeanor brandishing a firearm.

A representative for Dre didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
