Kid Cudi Arrested At Gunpoint

Kid Cudi was arrested at gunpoint yesterday (December 22) after finishing a photo shoot at the Joyrich Store in Melrose Avenue due to a case of mistaken identity by the police.

According to reports, the rapper was pulled over by an officer while on Fairfax Avenue. Cudi was with his entourage in two SUVs and a jeep when two police cars blocked off the road and three others pulled up next to the vehicles. The passengers were then ordered to get out of their vehicles with their hands on their heads, and then were made to kneel on the ground where they were handcuffed.

However, after they were handcuffed, officers, who were responding to a burglary call, realized their error and allowed Cudi and his entourage to go on their way.

"Who knows, really, the story changed a bunch. 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."

Kid Cudi doesn't feel that this was a case of racial profiling but feels that the police are under a lot of stress since of the large amount of crime that takes place in L.A. and that he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

"We're in LA, it's a rowdy place in the United States, you know? And a lot of sh*t goes down. And these cops have to use force,"he explained.

"So, it's like I understand that they were just doing their job. I just wish we weren't in that place at that time."
