Rappers T.I. and Game found themselves in an intense standoff with Los Angeles police early Wednesday morning. A TMZ cameraman captured the rappers’ crew confronting police officers after two of their “mutual acquaintances” were badly beaten outside a L.A. nightclub.
It was later revealed to them that the venue’s private security, and not the police, were responsible for the attack. However, that was not before several heated moments, which saw police officers wielding batons fearing the breakout of a nasty brawl. There’s also a point in the video where it appears an officer is going for his holster. The rappers’ entourage attempted to protect itself by asking the TMZ cameraman to film the officers.
According to TMZ, two men were taken into custody, but no charges were filed.
