Solange Knowles Denied By Miami Club, Argues With Police Over Balloon

by at . Comments

While her sister Beyonce was revealing her pregnancy, Solange Knowles made headlines for less positive reasons in Miami, Fla., on Sunday night.

According to reports, Solange and her crew were rejected from a club because they had a balloon, which they decided to cross the street to pop.

Yes, this happened ... and resulted in a run-in with the cops.

There they encountered two off duty police officers, and a conversation ensued, which was "casual and light-hearted" at first. Then it went bad.

Apparently, the authorities were not enthralled about Solange being there, or about the balloon, which they brandished a weapon to destroy.

Police say Solange was "armed" with a "five-foot inflatable banana."

We're serious. According to Solange's rep, these events followed:

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 filing a report and has not yet decided on further legal action.

The Miami Beach police said in rebuttal that Solange became unruly, loudly complaining of being rejected from the club for racial reasons.

Solange inisists she never once raised her voice, although even if she did, cops whipping out a switchblade may not have been necessary.

Beyonce's sis has also gone on to state her sincerest disappointment with the Miami Beach Police and how they have handled this matter.

No word if the matter will be pursued any further.
