DJ Moodymann Captures Video Of Police Aiming Rifles At Him In His Own Backyard
The Detroit DJ was arrested and issued several cititations even though he wasn’t the suspect police were looking for.
Moodymann recently shared an unsettling video of a confrontation with Highland Park police officers.
In the video (which was deleted and then resurfaced on someone else’s Instagram account), a police officer can be seen pointing a gun at the DJ, whose real name is Kenny Dixon Jr., while he’s in his car. The cop repeatedly tells Dixon to “Unlock the fucking door now” while Dixon responds, “I’m unlocking it.”

I am SO out done about this sh%t 😡! No matter if this man is a celebrity or not enough is enough! But it IS more upsetting because he is an artist from my town who has YEARS of history and influence in music behind him. BS! #moodymann #313 #detroit #cops #sowrong #notright #highlandparkmichigan #police #lawenforcement @playgrmuziq @normtalleyii @badbeats87 @djminxwomenonwax @djtoneworldwide
Elsewhere in the video, a second officer can be seen in the car’s driver side mirror. That same officer opens the door after Dixon unlocks it.
“HP police came n (MY BACKYARD)demanding proof of ownership and this is how they reacted (Went 2 jail again)charged me 4 Breaking and entering on my own property even though I had keys,” Dixon wrote in a caption with the since-deleted video. “what u can’t c is 9 other officers pointing their AR15 directly at my head …next time just pull the MF trigger let’s get this shit over with (I’m tired) I’m so tired).”
According to the Detroit Free Press, police were responding to a call of scrappers targeting buildings in the neighborhood when they encoutered Dixon. Although the DJ wasn’t their suspect, the police arrested him after he “did not produce personal ID nor proof of ownership of the property.”
“Further investigation confirmed ownership and Mr. Dixon was released and issued several citations regarding this incident,” a police statement said.
