Solange Knowles Tussles with the Cops - Over a Banana!

Yeah, you read that right.

While big sister, “Bey” was busy stealing the show at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, Solange Knowles was in Miami Beach, apparently not getting the red carpet treatment she expected.

After being turned away at the door of Club Cameo, police say that Knowles "became abusive" with off-duty officers who tried to escort her across the street to calm her down.

They say “banana”; Solange says “racism.”

"A police officer just pulled a weapon on me," Solange tweeted after the August 28th incident. "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."

The mom-of-one claims that the off-duty policemen pulled a switchblade on her and threatened to deflate the banana; all of which the officers deny.

The incident is currently being investigated by Miami Beach PD’s Internal Affairs department, but we're thinking this is exactly the kind of s**t that happens when Solange leaves the house without her “I’m BeyoncĂ©’s sister” t-shirt.
