(AllHipHop News) Offset's attorney, Drew Findling, has been fighting back against the criminal charges, claiming his client was a victim of racial profiling.
He alleges police officers used the traffic violation as a thinly-veiled excuse to target Offset, and insists the firearms found in his car belong to a passenger, an assistant who is a licensed gun holder, reports TMZ.com.
The lawyer also asserts no field sobriety test was performed by the cops and the absence of this screening proves the rapper was not impaired at the time of the stop.
However, law enforcement sources tell the outlet Offset had actually been weaving in and out of traffic prior to his arrest, apparently posing a more serious safety risk to other drivers.
Meanwhile, Offset's wife Cardi B claims he was profiled by The Hip-Hop Cops and that he doesn't even own any guns.
