Offset Settles Fine for Traffic Violations Despite Challenge to Take It to Court

Footage from police body camera unveils the 'Bad and Boujee' hitmaker's arguments when an Atlanta cop wrote him three traffic citations, including one for speeding, in late March.

AceShowbiz - Migos rapper Offset has paid a hefty fine for three traffic violations despite angrily contesting the offences at the time.

The "Bad and Boujee" hitmaker was pulled over on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia, in late March, and police body camera footage obtained by shows him arguing with the officer who stopped him.

The officer wrote the 27-year-old star three traffic citations, including one for speeding and a warning for obscuring his registration tags, causing Offset to accuse the cop of "picking on black folk" and pulling him over because he was driving a nice car before vowing to "beat this in court".

However, documents show the hip-hop star accepted he was at fault in the end, paying $470 (£388) in fines for speeding and failure to maintain his lane, as well as $100 (£82) for missing a hearing.

Speaking to the cop, Offset, real name Kiari Cephus, also hinted at his celebrity status, saying the officer's kids "probably like me" and would be disappointed in his behaviour.

The Migos member's wife, fellow rapper Cardi B, had her own dispute with the police this week (end August 25), slamming New York Police Department officers for allegedly forcing a pal to abandon plans to give out school supplies by warning off a Brooklyn school principal.
