While Ye was not arrested, Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson Redina Puentes confirmed that the altercation took place at around 3 a.m. in downtown Los Angeles, outside of Soho Warehouse at South Santa Fe Avenue and Bay Street. TMZ initially shared a video that allegedly showed the rapper yelling, “Did y’all say that or not? Did y’all say that or not?” and “‘Cause that’s what happened right f*cking now.”
