Beyonce's sister Solange Knowles has taken aim at police in Florida after, she says, one official pulled a weapon on her during a fracas outside a club.
While her big sister was announcing baby news at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, Solange was venting her fury at law officials in Miami Beach over a scuffle that, according to a report by a Miami-based NBC station, began when Knowles tried to enter the Camero Nightclub while carrying a 5-foot inflatable banana.
The singer/DJ took to Twitter to recount the experience and explained, "A police officer just pulled a weapon on me... I have done NOTHING illegal, against the law, or anything of the sort.
"I am simply tired of police using arrogance, ego and authority as an offense... I'm only tweeting this to raise awareness. I could have left quietly, but I am sick & tired of this scenario being played over & over again.

Details of the incident remain sketchy, but Miami Beach police detective Juan Sanchez told E! News, "The whole entire incident was about the fact that she was not allowed in a club. When she became abusive, she was pulled to the side. There was no mention of a gun. Considering it might be an internal investigation, I can't tell you much other than that."
Knowles later assured fans she was safe at her apartment and in the process of filing a police report.
Subsequent news reports have not identified the whereabouts of the banana.
