According to TMZ, Blueface was outside Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles with his girlfriend Chrisean Rock in Vegas when officers arrested him in what appears to be an undercover operation.
TMZ has also obtained video of the Oct. 8 incident where he is accused of pulling a gun on the driver of a truck.
The black-and-white surveillance clip shows the 25-year-old rapper outside a Las Vegas club when a vehicle approaches. Blueface allegedly pulls out a weapon before firing it multiple times at the driver as they speed off.

Sources claim that the driver was attacked by Blueface’s crew at the club earlier in the evening. Blueface was reportedly not directly involved in the fight. The video appears to show what happened after the man pulled up on Blueface and his crew in his car as they were leaving. The man allegedly asked “Who hit me?” before shots rang out.
Following Blueface’s arrest, Chrisean took to Instagram to show her support for her boyfriend after being told that she should leave him. “Stop playin’. Ni**a never left me when I went in,” she said. “That’s all that matters. He coming home.”
Blueface’s bail has been set at $50,000. He is set to appear in court on Jan. 24.
