There's a warrant for Offset's arrest after the Migos rapper allegedly broke a man's phone at a Target store in Georgia last week. TMZ reports that the man started recording on his iPhone as he approached Offset, and the rapper responded, "Get the f--- out of my face" before allegedly knocking the phone out of the man's hands. It fell to the ground and the screen shattered. Because the phone "reach[es] the felony threshold" at a worth of $800, per TMZ, police issued a felony arrest warrant. (Here's what Offset was doing Wednesday night.)
