TMZ obtained footage of Tyga handcuffed against a fence and surrounded by cops. "Tyga was the driver," Kim confirms to Us. "I was told he was cited and released at the scene. I don't know if he was detained, he may have been. Officers have the discretion to detain any occupants in a traffic stop. I do know for sure he was cited and released at the scene. The LAPD School Police are the one's who cited and released the driver, I don't know where there's a school nearby or if they were just driving between schools but they are sworn Police Officers."
