He continues: 'You told me to put my hands up, I'm not doing that. There's 25,000 people [watching] on my livestream. You're gonna get sued publicly.'
One of the police officers then tried to reach into Offset's car and open the door from the inside. Offset responded 'You can't do that! It's not legal!' the star yells.
"I'm gonna sue the s**t outta you. Ya'll know who I am?' he asks the officers."
The live stream ended when the officers were able to open the door and Offset steps out of the vehicle.
