An arrest warrant has been issued for Offset, TMZ reports. According to TMZ, which has video of the purported incident, the Migos rapper was at a Target in Sandy Springs, Georgia when a man (identified by TMZ as Junior Gibbons) filmed him and said, “What up, Offset?” Offset allegedly said, “Get the fuck out of my face,” and knocked the phone out of the man’s hand, causing it to break.

Offset is reportedly facing a felony charge for damage to private property. Pitchfork has obtained a Sandy Springs Police Department incident report filed by Richard Andrew Gibbons. In the report, Gibbons claims that his iPhone 8, valued at $800, was damaged. The report indicates that the incident occurred on Monday, April 22 and was filed to police on Friday, April 26.

Pitchfork has contacted Offset’s representatives and attorneys.

Earlier this year, Offset was formally charged with one felony and two misdemeanors in Clayton County, Georgia, stemming from a July 2018 arrest. He has pled not guilty to the charges: possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana, and committing an improper lane change. Offset has a court date next week.

Offset served time in a Georgia prison for drugs and firearm possession in 2015. Since his release from prison in December of that year, he has been arrested in the state multiple times, including for driving with a suspended license and for marijuana possession.
