Mikki Mase, a well-known social media influencer and professional gambler, has been detained and questioned by Los Angeles police. The arrest came as neighbors in the Chatsworth area reported hearing gunshots. Police questioned Mase and three other men.

Police arrived on the scene wearing tactical helmets and carrying rifles after receiving the call at around 10.30pm. As seen in a video of the incident, Mase and the three other men then approached police walking along the road. Officials told them to approach with their hands up before handcuffing them:

Police made no arrests in the incident. The Los Angeles Times contacted Mase via phone on Monday. He said: “It’s not a crime to walk on a public walkway. We were not on private property. I saw a firework fired earlier in the night and thought it was weird, but thought if I lived out here I might do the same thing.”
