Law enforcement officials have issued an arrest warrant for rapper Offset after he was allegedly set off by a person filming him on a cellphone camera, which he is accused of subsequently breaking.

Police in Sandy Springs, Georgia, confirmed to ET on Thursday that there is a warrant out for his arrest regarding a phone-smacking incident at a local Target.

A spokesperson for the police told ET that they have gotten in touch with an attorney for the rapper -- whose real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus -- and are discussing the possibility of having Offset turn himself in.

The rapper is facing a criminal charge of damage to property in the second degree, which is a felony in Georgia if the cost of the damage is over $500. According to a police report obtained by ET, the phone in question was an iPhone 8, valued at $800.

A video, originally posted by the fan who claims his phone was broken, posted a video to social media allegedly showing Offset smacking the phone out of his hand.

The warrant was issued on April 26, the same day the alleged incident occurred.

On Wednesday, however, Offset accompanied his wife, Cardi B, to the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, where they were one of the cutest couples on the red carpet.
