That is, until Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies responded to the Malibu home of Dr. Dre around 11:15 a.m., Monday morning. According to a statement from the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff's station, a man had reported that Dr. Dre threatened him with a handgun for parking in front of his home on PCH.

When deputies arrived, Dr. Dre cooperated with authorities and denied having threatened the other driver. He claims his driveway was blocked, and was using his cell phone to record the other driver.
