An arrest warrant has been issued in Offset's name in his home state of Georgia, according to a TMZ report from Thursday (May 2).

The reported warrant stems from an April 22 altercation involving Set smashing a man's phone out of his hand, while the individual was taking a video of the rapper inside a Sandy Springs, Ga. Target store. 

"What up, Offset?" the man TMZ has identified as Junior Gibbons can be heard saying. The 27-year-old artist then runs over.

Offset allegedly then told Gibbons, "Get the fuck out of my face." Prior to saying that, he reportedly swiped  at Gibbons' iPhone 8, which allegedly smashed into an assortment of pieces. 

Richard Andrew Gibbons then filed the altercation to police on April 26, according to an incident report seen by Billboard. 

Following an investigation from Sandy Springs law enforcement, officers reportedly secured an arrest warrant for the Migos rapper, according to the outlet, because of the phone's $800 value and Offset's intentions, which is the threshold for a damage to property felony in the state of Georgia.

Meanwhile, Offset is facing a felony gun charge from a traffic stop that led to his arrest in Georgia during last July. The Father of 4 artist is facing three charges in total from that 2018 exchange.

Billboard has reached out to Offset's reps for comment.
