The incident reportedly started when the man blocked Dre’s driveway and refused to move. Dre was briefly handcuffed, searched and detained after a man accused the performer of pointing a gun at him. Dre told police he didn’t have a gun and no weapon was found, but he was cited a misdemeanor, Billboard reported.

Prosecutors have refused to bring gun charges against Dre because there were no witnesses and there were errors in the man’s account of the altercation.

The man has since filed a citizen’s arrest complaint.
