Local police Sergeant Sam Worsham reveals Offset’s legal representative has been in touch to discuss his surrender.
He says, “At this time, we’ve been in contact with his attorney and we’re making arrangements for him to turn himself in.
“At this time, he has not turned himself in. The warrant is still active.”
Authorities issued a warrant for the 27-year-old’s arrest on Thursday (May 2) after he appeared to have been caught on camera smacking a fan’s cellphone out of his hand at a Target department store in Sandy Springs, Atlanta last week.
The man, Junior Gibbons, claimed the screen of his $800 iPhone had been smashed as a result of the incident, and he reported it to police, who launched an investigation into the encounter.
Offset is already in trouble with the law following his arrest in Georgia last summer, when he was accused of making an improper lane change, possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.
The latter charge was subsequently dropped, but last week, police filed a new count for possession of a weapon by a convicted felon against the star.
He pleaded not guilty to the original counts in March and is due back in court later this month.
