As we reported yesterday, Solange Knowles had a nasty little run-in with the po-po down in Miami on Sunday night.
We all knew she wasn't let inside of a club, and we all know she felt about the cop situation through her frustrated tweets.
But NOW we're learning new details, and they're NOT pretty!
Apparently, when Solange and company were rejected from a club because they had a balloon, they decided to cross the street to pop it.
There they encountered two off duty police officers. Conversation ensued, and at first it was "casual and light-hearted."
But then, according to Solange's rep:
One officer pulled out a switchblade and threatened to pop the balloon. They felt it was inappropriate, but the turning point happened when he then took out the switchblade a second time with the blade open and said to them, 'I don't find the humor in this, anymore.' The blade was less than a couple feet away from Solange and her friends. The officer proceeded to "forcefully" ask them to move, gesturing that they cross the street though there was oncoming traffic. Solange then asked the officer what was it that they did wrong, and he forcefully responded again to move. When a taxi pulled up, they got in and headed home. Solange made a series of calls to report the incident and was told to be prepared to be arrested when she came in to report the incident if her story was false. Solange simply wanted to report that the officer pulled out a weapon, when she had done nothing illegal, disruptive or belligerent. Solange is actively filing a report and has not yet decided on further legal action.
Damn! That does not sound fun!
As far as the MBPD's side, they have stated that Solange became unruly, loudly complaining of being rejected from the club for racial reasons.
(Even if that's true, we don't think a switchblade is the answer.)
But Solange inisists she never once raised her voice. She has also gone on to state her sincerest disappointment with the Miami Beach Police and how they have handled this matter.
Boo! What a way to ruin a perfectly celebratory weekend! We wonder how her pregnant sister, Beyonce, feels about all of this…
